Algeria tabled contributions and commitments in support of its candidacy for membership for the period 2014-2016 on 2 July 2013. Algeria made a number of concrete pledges and commitments at both international and national levels.
At international level, Algeria pledged to: strengthen the effectiveness of international cooperation on counterterrorism; encourage constructive dialogue within the UPR Working Group; provide funding, in collaboration with OHCHR, to develop workshops in LDCs; strengthen cooperation with Special Procedures and extend a Standing Invitation; and regularly submit periodic reports under the treaties.
Domestically, it committed to: withdraw its reservation to article 15(4) of the CEDAW; promote the role of civil society organisations when preparing periodic reports; and establish a national mechanism to promote the CRC and the CRPD.
An analysis of steps taken by Algeria in fulfilment of its international level pledges shows that, regarding Special Procedures cooperation, even though Algeria has not extended a Standing Invitation, it has completed or accepted more than half of all visit requests and has extended five invitations to Special Procedures mandate-holders. Algeria responded to almost 90% of the communications received.
Turning to the human rights treaties, with respect to the instruments to which Algeria is Party, it is yet to submit its periodic reports under five of these instruments. In terms of UPR engagement, Algeria actively participated in other States’ reviews, speaking during 179 and 186 Working Group dialogues over the course of the first cycle and second cycles, and 131 during the third cycle. Algeria made yearly voluntary contributions to OHCHR between 2014 and 2020. Algeria has yet to withdraw its reservation to article 15(4) of CEDAW.
