The aim of this chapter is to analyse youth civic and political participation in Algeria. The importance of this subject in academic work has been growing since the Arab Spring events that unfolded in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA). The analysis is based on the quantitative and qualitative data from the SAHWA Project. In the case of Algeria, this is the most significant research project carried out on young people as it covers not only aspects of their daily lives, but also their perceptions of employment, education and social institutions, political and civic participation, and culture and values. Participation appears to be more than going to vote or performing activities in a humanitarian association. The issue encompasses young people’s living conditions, the sociopolitical and economic history of the country, and the relationship between society and the state.
