1. Overview

#france

After more than a century of rule by France, Algerians fought through much of the 1950s to achieve independence in 1962. Algeria's primary political party, the National Liberation Front (FLN), was established in 1954 as part of the struggle for independence and has largely dominated politics since. The Government of Algeria in 1988 instituted a multi-party system in response to public unrest, but the surprising first round success of the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) in the December 1991 balloting led the Algerian army to intervene and postpone the second round of elections to prevent what the secular elite feared would be an extremist-led government from assuming power. The army began a crackdown on the FIS that spurred FIS supporters to begin attacking government targets. Fighting escalated into an insurgency, which saw intense violence from 1992-98, resulting in over 100,000 deaths - many attributed to indiscriminate massacres of villagers by extremists. The government gained the upper hand by the late-1990s, and FIS's armed wing, the Islamic Salvation Army, disbanded in January 2000. Abdelaziz BOUTEFLIKA, with the backing of the military, won the presidency in 1999 in an election widely viewed as fraudulent. He was reelected to a second term in 2004 and overwhelmingly won a third term in 2009, after the government amended the constitution in 2008 to remove presidential term limits. Longstanding problems continue to face BOUTEFLIKA, including large-scale unemployment, a shortage of housing, unreliable electrical and water supplies, government inefficiencies and corruption, and the continuing activities of extremist militants. The Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC) in 2006 merged with al-Qa'ida to form al-Qa'ida in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb, which has launched an ongoing series of kidnappings and bombings targeting the Algerian Government and Western interests. The government in 2011 introduced some political reforms in response to the Arab Spring, including lifting the 19-year-old state of emergency restrictions and increasing women's quotas for elected assemblies. Parliamentary elections in May 2012 and municipal and provinicial elections in November 2012 saw continued dominance by the FLN, with Islamist opposition parties performing poorly. Political protest activity in the country remained low in 2012, but small, sometimes violent socioeconomic demonstrations by disparate groups continued to be a common occurrence. Parliament in 2013 is expected to revise the constitution.

CIA's The World Factbook (2013)9

Book CoverStretching from the Mediterranean to the Sahara, Algeria is the colossus of North Africa, a distinctively Maghrebian destination revealing little-visited attractions to the adventurous traveller. Africa´s largest country lies just a short hop from Europe and, with tourists still a novelty, offers attractions as unpeopled as they are varied.

The capital, Algiers, is one of the Maghreb´s most urbane and charismatic cities, with a heady, nostalgic mix of colonial and modernist architecture, and a traditional medina at its vertiginous heart. Across the north are stunning coastlines, lush rural hinterland and a number of well-preserved Roman cities.

Algeria's trump card, though, is its extraordinary Saharan region. Whether it´s a glimpse of the sand seas and dunes that surround Timimoun, or a plunge headlong into the far south from Tamanrasset, these are the desert landscapes of dream and legend.

Perhaps best of all, Algerians welcome visitors with warmth and a genuine curiosity. For accessible adventure and a complex, enthralling cultural odyssey, head for Algeria now.

The United Nations produces an annual Human Development Report which includes the Human Development Index. The factors taken into account include life expectancy, education and schooling and Gross National Income (GNI) amongst many others..

The Social and Moral Development Index concentrates on moral issues and human rights, violence, public health, equality, tolerance, freedom and effectiveness in climate change mitigation and environmentalism, and on some technological issues. A country scores higher for achieving well in those areas, and for sustaining that achievement in the long term. Those countries towards the top of this index can truly said to be setting good examples and leading humankind onwards into a bright, humane, and free future. See: Which are the Best Countries in the World? The Social and Moral Development Index.

3. Algeria's Demographics

#birth_control #demographics #health #immigration #life_expectancy #longevity #migration #overpopulation #population

Population:

Algeria's population is predicted to rise to 43.48 million by 2030. This country has a fertility rate of 2.17. The fertility rate is, in simple terms, the average amount of children that each woman has. The higher the figure, the quicker the population is growing, although, to calculate the rate you also need to take into account morbidity, i.e., the rate at which people die. If people live healthy and long lives and morbidity is low, then, 2.0 approximates to the replacement rate, which would keep the population stable. If all countries had such a fertility rate, population growth would end. The actual replacement rate in most developed countries is around 2.1.

4. Human Rights, Equality & Tolerance

#Algeria #equality #freedom #human_rights #islam #islamic_extremism #politics #tolerance

Algeria is amongst the worst places in the world at ensuring human rights and freedom, and it has severe cultural issues when it comes to tolerance and equality. Algeria does better than average in its nominal commitment to Human Rights19 and in speed of uptake of HR treaties20. But that's it. Algeria has problems. It does worse than average for opposing gender inequality21 (still low for Africa) and in supporting press freedom22. And finally, it falls into the worst 20 in terms of its success in fighting anti-semitic prejudice23 (one of the worst in Africa), commentary in Human Rights Watch reports24, supporting personal, civil & economic freedoms25 (amongst the worst in Africa) and in LGBT equality26. A strictly Islamic country, those who do not believe the right things (2011) are harassed, intimidated and persecuted27. Severe restrictions exist on religious freedom and freedom of belief. A wide range of legal measures are used to stifle free speech, especially anything that criticizes the government, its staff, or Islam28,29.

The countries with the best overall approach to public health, in terms of both public policy and individual lifestyle choices, are Hong Kong, Singapore and The Maldives30. These countries are worth emulating. And, although often through no fault of the average citizen, the worst countries are S. Sudan, Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea30.

The data sets used to calculate points for each country are its average life expectancy, its alcohol consumption rate, its fertility rate, its smoking rate, its suicide rate, its food aid and health contributions and WHO compliance, the prevalence of overweight adults, its adolescent birth rate and its immunizations take-up. The regions with the best average results per country are Scandinavia, Asia and Europe30, whereas the worst are Africa, Micronesia and Polynesia30.

Health:

Algeria does relatively well in encouraging good health, compared to many other countries. Algeria does better than average for its alcohol consumption rate32, its adolescent birth rate21 (one of the best in Africa), its immunizations take-up33, its average life expectancy12 (the best in Africa) and in its fertility rate15 (one of the lowest in Africa). Algeria does not succeed in everything, however. It does worse than average in terms of its smoking rate34 (amongst the worst in Africa). And finally, it falls into the worst 20 for its food aid and health contributions and WHO compliance35 (amongst the highest in Africa). The number of overweight adults has increased by 14% between 1976 and 2016.

Data from the Pew Forum, a professional polling outfit, states that in 2010 the religious makeup of this country was as follows in the table below65:

Christian0.2%
Muslim97.9%
Hindu0.1%
Buddhist0.1%
Folk Religion0.1%
Jew0.1%
Unaffiliated1.8%

The CIA World Factbook has slightly different data, and states: Sunni Muslim (state religion) 99%, Christian and Jewish 1%66.

Freedom of Religion and Belief: When it comes to religious freedom and persecution, sociologists Grim & Finke place Algeria into the worst category, along with just 13 other countries27. Under the premise of Islam, severe restrictions on religious freedom and freedom of belief stem both from government decree29 and from social pressure27. The small Islamic Ahmadi sect, for example, had over 266 of its members prosecuted and the charges included "denigrating the precepts of Islam"28 because they did not strictly adhere to the state's version of Islam.
