Migration usually aims at improving one’s life conditions and, thereby, one’s wellbeing. Undoubtedly these expectations are not always fulfilled, especially in those host contexts where recently arrived groups are put in a powerless condition. This study, based on the Psychology of Liberation framework, aims to empirically investigate the relation between host context justice degree and well-being in the Moroccan immigrant population living in the south of Spain. 633 immigrants living in 20 territorial areas in Andalusia participated in the data collection. Results show that Moroccan immigrants’ well-being is strongly related to justice degree. Moreover, host community openness to diversity, community service providers’ cultural sensitivity and the absence of residential segregation are appropriate indicators of the level of contextual justice. In conclusion results confirm Psychology of Liberation theoretical framework.

Keywords: Well-being, context, immigration, justice, liberation.
