Carnegie Middle East Center

In February 2019, millions of Algerians began protesting against a fifth term of their ailing 82-year-old then-president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika. The popular movement caught the regime off guard, leading to Bouteflika’s resignation within a matter of weeks. However, Algerians are keeping up the pressure, and their leaderless, peaceful movement has shown no signs of waning. The Carnegie Middle East Center held a panel discussion that examined the present situation and considerd possible future outcomes in Algeria in 2019. It focused on the characteristics of the protests, the role of the opposition and Islamists, possible resolutions to the current political impasse, and the attitude of the armed forces, who remain the real locus of power. The event also touched upon the potential spillover of the protests into Morocco, Libya, and beyond.
