Since the tumultuous events of 2011, Algeria has endured a surfeit of crises including ongoing protests, the collapse of oil prices and the global downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Far-reaching social, economic and governance reforms are needed to stabilize the country.
This event explores the long-term effects of political reform, improved agricultural productivity and climate change on Algeria’s prospects. The potential for renewable energy and investment in the knowledge economy to reduce the country’s dependence on hydrocarbons will also be considered.
The event is organized in partnership with the Institute for Security Studies.
