Abdessamad Bouabid’s PhD research entailed an inquiry into the stigmatisation of Moroccan Dutch in the Netherlands, through a qualitative discourse analysis of Dutch media discourse, and into the effects these mass stigmatisation has on the daily lives of Moroccan Dutch male adolescents, through interviews, participant observations and social media analysis. Currently, he is interested in the interplay between youth crime and the criminalisation of youth living in multicultural cities.
