Across Legal Lines

Yale University Press

This chapter utilizes four case studies to illustrate how Jews increasingly saw foreigners—both diplomats and international Jewish organizations—as a resource when they believed they had been victims of abuse. Yet while Jews wrote more and more petitions to powerful figures in Europe and the Americas, they also continued to demand their rights from the Makhzan; outside intervention did not replace Jews' appeals to Moroccan government officials, but it did expand the number of options to which Jews had access and thus change their legal calculus. Similarly, as increasing numbers of Jews acquired foreign protection or nationality, the numbers of Jews using consular courts rose.

Keywords:   diplomacy, international Jewish organizations, Makhzan, Moroccan government, Jewish legal access, consular courts, foreign legal venues, extraterritoriality, legal mobility
