The conclusion wraps up the arguments made in the course of the book and attempts to give some tentative answers to the main question concerning the consequences of ‘stuckness’ on people’s lives in Morocco. In summary, the book shows how the current policy mechanisms which limit certain people’s mobility through border controls can have particularly negative effects on the life course of individuals. The discussion of migrants’ situation in Morocco shows how international migration control policies are actively hampering migrants’ and would-be migrants’ abilities to design a dignified, self-controlled life plan and to establish productive and mutually supporting relations with others. Such policies foster segregation, marginalisation and exploitation. As such, control policies are doing much more than simply inhibiting movement. They are also inhibiting people’s effective settlement and their development as persons.
