Report In March 2015 I went to Rabat and Casablanca to prepare for field research and to conduct some interviews with local associations like Initiatives Urbaines, Réseau Marocain pour le Logement Décent or IDMAJ, and local researchers from the Centre Jacques Berque and the Institut National d’Aménagement et de l’Urbanisme . I was also able to talk to resettled former shantytown dwellers and to people that are currently facing resettlement and eviction. Thanks to the interviews I got more information about the conditions and procedures of resettlement programmes and about the making of urban policy in Morocco. Moreover, I got a lot of new contacts that can help me during future research stays.
