More transparency needed in housing policies in Algeria

view of Algiers

Government housing policies in Algeria need to be more open and public.

Those are the findings of a 10-day mission to the country by Raquel Rolnik, the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing.

While she commended the government's commitment to building low income housing, Rolnik also reminded officials there has to be transparency when it comes to how people are selected to live there.

The Special Rapporteur noted that Algerians have been protesting the government's selection process for housing.

Algeria must democratize housing policies, says UN human rights expert
