In 2012, with youth unemployment in Algeria at an all-time high, the government called on UNICEF to conduct an analysis of youth services in the country.
I worked with a team of four researchers to carry out this analysis. Through desk research, I reviewed the state of youth participation in four different areas: education, the labour market, self-expression, and health, sexuality and wellbeing. I was also in charge of national and international media monitoring on the different areas.
The project was cancelled after the president’s ill health led to political instability, but we were able to present a preliminary report.
