Fifty years on from Algerian Independence and one year after the Arab Spring, the Centre for European and International Studies Research at the University of Portsmouth has launched Year of Algeria to reflect upon the historical significance of Algerian independence both for Algeria and the wider world.
On March 15-17, as part of this year, a conference on Algeria and the Arab Revolutions set Algerian history within the widest possible framework, examining Arab, African and Third World revolutionary contexts, and analysing the links that straddle the pre-colonial past, the colonial period, the war and the post-independence period.
Taking the intersection of the recent elections, the first since the ‘Arab Awakening’, with the fiftieth anniversary of independence, this page reflects upon the connections between Algeria’s pasts, presents and futures. We want to open up a public conversation which will situate the country’s history, society and politics within the wider context of the Arab World; one that will be finely attuned to specificities and generalities as we explore Algerian aspirations for themselves and for their country in the twenty-first century.
