Algeria: Revolution, Army and Political Power
Zeraoui, Zidane
Language and Intercultural Communication, v12 n2 p133-145 2012
Despite the numerous similarities among the Arab countries that explain the rapid popular movements since the end of 2010, the case of Algeria presents particular features. It shares the same inequalities and social challenges as the rest of the countries in the region. However, the revolutionary process in Algeria between 1954 and 1962 and the civil war that hit the country during the 1990s with the Berbers' regional claims have depoliticized the masses or generated a fear of change. This explains why mobilizations in Algeria have not been successful as in other countries. In addition, the role of the Algerian army is "sui generis" and has allowed the current stability around an old president. (Contains 11 notes.)
