Monday, February 05, 2018
Noon-1 p.m.
The talk looks at women’s rights reforms in Algeria since the Black Decade (1992-2002) to show how Algeria is converging with Tunisia and Morocco in legislative and constitutional reforms, but also why these trends differ from trends in the Middle East, where these reforms have been much slower. It also looks at the limitations of women’s rights reforms in Algeria.
