Dalia Ghanem at European Parliament

21 March 2023
Dalia Ghanem on stage

On 21 March 2023, Dr Ghanem participated in a hearing at the Subcommittee on Human Rights of the European Parliament (DROI). The topic of the discussion was the state of human rights in Algeria.

Dalia defined the current Algerian regime as a 'hybrid regime', meaning a mix of democratic and authoritarian regime. She described the state of the associative sector as fragmented: while allowing space for pluralism, the regime narrowed the space for democratisation. Civil society organisations have multiplied but haven't prospered.

Finally, repression still exists but is more more calibrated and subtle than the violent repression of the 80s and 90s.

Dr Ghanem also answered questions from Members of the European Parliament.
