    Moroccans have been demanding change since February 20, with increasingly regular and mostly peaceful protests.

    The King has reacted to these demands with a number of speeches, but Friday's announcement of constitutional reforms has brought the most reaction.

    King Mohammed VI says the changes will turn Morocco from a 400-year-old monarchy into a constitutional one.

    But, will it? Is it the change people want? And will it end their months of protests?

    Inside Story, with presenter Kamahl Santamaria, discusses with Shahi Hamid, the research director at the Brookings Doha Center; Mustafa El Khalfi from the Mohamed V University in Rabat; and Nabila Ramdani, a North African affairs journalist in London.
