Struggles of Citizenship in the Maghreb

Abstract : Although citizenship is a fundamental issue in postcolonial states, it has been hardly discussed within the Maghreb countriesi since independence and until recently. Citizenship regulations were among the first legal texts to be adopted after independence. Yet, they were subject to very few changes in the decades afterwards. The last decade’s debates and reforms have highlighted the topicality of the struggles of citizenship – struggles that had been hidden for years and which have recently found the opportunity to emerge. Today, expatriates, women, and other parts of the Maghrebian populations, including Berbers, claim their recognition and their rights as full citizens.
