Residential Segregation and Economic Isolation: The Moroccan Paradox

(p.162) Chapter Eight Residential Segregation and Economic Isolation: The Moroccan Paradox
Shifting Ethnic Boundaries and Inequality in Israel
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines how dichotomization occurred, by considering the impact of residential location on labor market outcomes. It considers the Moroccan paradox—that Moroccans who were relegated to single industry, low opportunity areas (development towns) had better returns to education and better overall attainment than Moroccans who lived elsewhere. It shows complex relationships between ethnicity and attainment in the first encounter with the labor market. It considers when educational attainments were distributed to the immigrants' children through the national school system. It finds a dynamic that caused Iraqi attainment levels to drop to those of other Mizrahim: in the schools, Iraqi boys experienced ethnic discrimination, such that they obtained no returns to their fathers' occupational attainments.

Keywords:   Moroccan paradox, residential location, labor market outcomes, occupational attainment, national school system, Mizrahim, ethnic discrimination
