Socio-economic challenges in Morocco: Migration, education, and employment - Perspectives from the region and Europe
11 October 2018

Francesca Fabbri contributed to a collection of working papers put together by the German Council on Foreign Relations. The papers were inspired by a series of workshops under the heading 'Promotion of Think Tank Work on Migration and Socio-Economic Challenges in Morocco' that the German Council on Foreign Relations’ Middle East and North Africa Program organised in the winter of 2017 and the spring of 2018.

In her paper, 'Money Can’t Buy Labor: Prospects for the Impact of Renewed EU Foreign Policy Instruments in Morocco', Fabbri assesses EU policies to support labour market development in Morocco. She furthermore argues that the structural problems of Morocco’s labour market, such as its non-inclusivity, the large size of the informal sector, and corruption, require better coordination between the EU’s initiatives to blend financing instruments and its European Neighborhood Policy.
