Transnational Issues in Algeria

Disputes – International

Algeria and many other states reject Moroccan administration of Western Sahara. The Polisario Front, exiled in Algeria, represents the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic. Algeria's border with Morocco remains an irritant to bilateral relations, as each nation accusing the other of harbouring militants and arms smuggling. Dormant disputes include Libyan claims of about 32,000 km² still reflected on its maps of southeastern Algeria and the National Liberation Front's (FLN) assertions of a claim to Chirac Pastures in southeastern Morocco.

Refugees & Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

In 2012, there were 90,000 Western Saharan Sahrawi refugees, mostly living in Algerian-sponsored camps in the southwestern Algerian town of Tindouf.

Human Trafficking

Algeria is a transit and destination country for men, women and children from sub-Saharan Africa and Asia trafficked for forced labour and sexual exploitation. Many victims willingly migrate to Algeria en route to European countries with the help of smugglers, where they are often forced into prostitution, labour and begging in order to pay off their smuggling debt. Some Algerian children are reportedly trafficked within the country for domestic servitude.
