Background:
During its 67 years of independent existence, Algeria witnessed robust post-colonial development, a slow transition from revolutionary rule, a stunted political opening and bloody civil war, and an extended period of political lethargy. The latest developments, however, appear to steer the country in a managed transition to what is hoped to be a pluralistic political system representing the different forces in society. With powerful state organs agreeing to acquiesce to demands by peaceful protesters, what are the prospects for democratic political change in Algeria and how will these protests and changes impact Algeria’s regional environment and its relations with the international community?
