Dalia Ghanem is a resident scholar at the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut, where her work examines political and extremist violence, radicalization, Islamism, and jihadism, with an emphasis on Algeria. Recently, Ghanem was in Algeria during the uprising against a fifth term for president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, and in early March she described the situation there in a Diwan interview. In mid-April she sat with Diwan again to explain why Algerians were continuing to protest despite Bouteflika’s departure, to look forward at the presidential election scheduled for July 4, and to examine the role of the military in the country’s political transition.
