Algeria talks offer holds slim chance of breakthrough

Friday, July 5, 2019


Months of protests continue as dissatisfied Algerians demand a complete, not cosmetic, overhaul of the political system. As the army, politicians, and opposition actors all want to avoid a descent into civil war, this encourages caution on all sides.

  • Foreign oil companies will be wary of investing in Algeria’s hydrocarbon sector as Sonatrach is involved in a corruption scandal.
  • Worsening economic conditions could turn the protests violent and create further instability.
