Abstract
How do countries of origin deal with their post-migrant generations, the emigrants' descendants who are born and raised abroad? In this article we examine the diaspora policies of Morocco, a country that relies heavily on its expatriate communities and that is confronted with growing post-migrant generations. Theoretically, the article draws on the literature on diaspora policies and migrant transnationalism and connects the two. An in-depth examination of the annual Summer Universities for young Moroccans Living Abroad, one of the flagships of the current Moroccan diaspora policy, demonstrates that diaspora policy programmes are vehicles to convey targeted messages to the post-migrant generations concerning their transnational ties.
