Please join the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) for a virtual event about religious freedom conditions in Algeria. 

This special event will highlight recent and ongoing religious freedom concerns in Algeria, including the restriction and closure of Protestant churches, as well as the potential impact of recent political developments on religious freedom conditions in the country.  These trends were reflected in USCIRF’s 2020 Annual Report which recommended that the U.S. Department of State include Algeria in its Special Watch List for engaging in or tolerating severe religious freedom violations.  USCIRF Vice Chair Anurima Bhargava and Commissioner Johnnie Moore will host a conversation with guest panelists Jeff King of International Christian Concern (ICC), and Dalia Ghanem of the Carnegie Middle East Center. USCIRF Director of Outreach and Policy Dwight Bashir will moderate the conversation followed by questions and answers from attendees.
