About this book

This book delves into migration management via an original case study of a guest worker programme involving the circular migration to Spain of female Moroccan agricultural workers destined for the strawberry agri-food industry in the south. To ensure that they do return to Morocco, mothers of young children are first earmarked and then selected on the basis of their poor, rural origins and the supposed "delicacy of their hands". This book analyses the mechanisms through which migration and workforces are controlled, while also addressing the paradoxical experience of these female seasonal workers, at the intersection of domination and emancipation.
