The national strategy in the field of migration and asylum is a multi-dimensional public policy that takes into account the human rights and economic aspects, and is based on the integrative approach of Africans, on the human rights dimension that King Mohammed VI often adopts. From his speeches since assuming the throne, and about the universal principles of human rights contained in international charters, then the principles of the 2011 constitution, and the comprehensive report prepared by the Ministerial National Council for Human Rights. The delegate in charge of human rights and the International Organization for Migration 2013.
In dealing with the migration file, Morocco tried to combine border control to limit the flow of migrants, and regularize the status of those who descend into Morocco and fulfill the conditions.
Despite the strong initiative, Morocco realizes that the problem of migration in Africa is beyond its capabilities. African migrants flock to the Moroccan borders, in an effort to move to Europe via Spain, and in light of the Spanish security strictness in controlling its borders with Morocco and coordination between Rabat and Madrid in combating the flow of migrants, it turns Morocco to a land of residence instead of being a land of transit in the past, which poses greater problems for it due to the need to settle the situation of these people and take care of their affairs.
