Marocains et Sénégalais de France: permanences et évolution des relations transnationales

Abstract : This article presents the Moroccan and Senegalese transnational practices in the political, economic and socio-cultural spheres. In spite of the historical parallelism of Moroccan and Senegalese, the study highlights the content differences which distinguish the two transnational fields. For instance, the Senegalese Murid brotherhood relies on their spiritual sway faithful to build up economic transnational networks. Amongst Moroccans, religion is a field of political tensions on which the Moroccan state strive to keep a firm hold. But, more than a mere enumeration, the authors shed light on invariants and paths of change of transnationalism. The age of Moroccan and Senegalese immigration to France is a factor of diversification of transnational activities. Mechanisms of integration, new generations, new occupational profiles, but also evolution of host and receiving societies, have deeply transformed practices which are increasingly opened outside ethnic communities.
