Algeria (41st Session)

Algeria

(41st Session)

ADF International is a faith-based legal advocacy organization that protects fundamental freedoms and promotes the inherent dignity of all people.

This report highlights the persecution of religious minorities in Algeria, particularly of
Christians and the Ahmadiyya community. Anti-proselytism and blasphemy laws exist
in Algeria, which undermine the freedom of religion of religious minorities. Additionally, the Algerian authorities require non-Muslim religious groups and places of worship to be registered with governmental authorities. These registration requirements have been used to discriminate against religious minorities and shut down Christian churches.
