The sub-themes of this conference are:

2. ‘Orientalisation’, Europeanisation, and Islamisation
3. The Maghrebi context and cultural interchange
4. Migration and discursive hybridities
5. Maghrebi literature in the diaspora
"Migration and Hybridity: The Europe - Maghreb Paradigm" 2010
This book titled "Migration and Hybridity: The Europe - Maghreb Paradigm", discusses the current cultural situation on the basis of differences characterizing the cultures of the region, and political and cultural diversity in the Maghreb countries and the European Union. It also aims at offering alternatives in terms of developing and deepening intercultural dialogue, consolidating values of tolerance and communication between the Maghreb and Europe.
The book shows that the Maghreb, particularly Morocco, with an ancestral tradition of diversity (cultural, linguistic, ethnic and religious) and who was always a privileged crossroad of civilizations, can contribute fundamentally in the rapprochement of the peoples of the region.
The contributors to this edited book discuss certain postcolonial international theories on hybridity. They will offer a rereading of fundamental cultures of the Maghreb, namely, Arab, Amazigh, Jewish, Christian, Andalusian cultures, Spanish, and French cultures regarding their relations with Europe.
