 Abstract: In 2004, Moroccan authorities updated the Moroccan Family Code to reflect the needs of modern families. This was considered a revolutionary move at the time. The research presented in this video sets out to investigate how, after ten years, this modernized code has been implemented in people's lives not only in Morocco but especially in the lives of Moroccans residing in European countries. To get a full picture the researchers applied a combination of ethnographic methods and methods from legal studies. MARIE-CLAIRE FOBLETS explains how the scientists analyzed the case law, the response of consulates in European countries to people seeking advice as well as the decision of judges in Morocco. The findings indicate that while the courts were first uneasy with applying the new code they adjusted over time. Furthermore, different national traditions have a major influence on the implementation of the Moroccan Family Code in Europe.
