The key issue of this paper is how representatives of Moroccan associations in the Netherlands have responded to the sudden rise of anti-immigrant sentiments and the stigmatization of Moroccans that has been taking place since the first decade of the twenty-first century in this country. Elaborate fieldwork done among representatives of Moroccan associations has been merged with several rounds of interviews conducted from 1997 to 2011, facilitating a longterm analysis. At the outset, the chapter focuses on four distinct periods: 1997, 2001-2004, 2005-2009 and 2011; followed by an attempt at demonstrating that it is possible to discern a certain development in the reactions outlined. Having dealt with the results chronologically, the analysis concludes with a typology of reactions, based on Gordon Allport’s theory of prejudice.
