Morocco, like its North African neighbours, has become a major transit point for people searching for a better life in Europe.

Unlike other neighbouring countries, however, Morocco is the first to develop a legal migration policy, offering people the chance to stay with permanent residency.

The policy was widely praised when it began last year. But critics say migrants in Morocco continue to face abuse, as well as camp closures and relocation.

So will they stay and call Morocco home? Or will they fulfil their dreams and continue on to Europe?
