Et-Tibari Bouasla, PhD

Et-Tibari holds a PhD in sociology from the University of Anglia’s School of Development Studies and a doctorate in anthropology from Paris-Sorbonne University. He has undertaken extensive field research in migration and local development, identity and integration of Moroccan immigrants in Europe, rural development and household income, and socioeconomic integration of youth. He has worked as an expert on migration with the Royal Institute for Strategic Studies, contributed to the development of Morocco’s National Strategy on Migration and Asylum, and served as a youth expert in a midterm evaluation project for a USAID-funded program for marginalized youth in northern Morocco. He coordinated a five-year academic program for training social development workers and facilitated the internships of trainees in various public social institutions and civil society entities, which allowed him to develop an impressive network of Moroccan NGOs involved in local development projects, migration, and social development. He has taught sociology and anthropology at University Mohammed V, Rabat, Morocco and abroad and was a member of the scientific committee of the International Review of Sociology (1991–2004). Over the last five years, he has been a regular lecturer and ISP advisor on SIT’s migration program in Rabat.
