Facts about gender based violence in Algeria

There are no comprehensive statistics available on how widespread sexual and gender-based violence is in Algeria. Yet, according to a major study on violence against women in Algeria published in 2005 and conducted by the National Institute for Public Health (Institut National de Santé Publique, INSP), and published in 2005 [1], 5,4% of the violence perpetrated against women was of a sexual nature.

Due to the stigma attached to rape and other sexual assaults, victims of sexual violence often do not report abuses and this estimate is therefore thought to be much higher. Recent statistics by the judicial police reported by the Algerian media, indicate that in the first nine months of 2013, 266 out of 7010 complaints related to sexual violence, including rape, sexual harassment and incest. [2]

The director of the judicial police responsible for the protection of women and children victims of violence reportedly said that the real figure was probably higher, given the taboo surrounding this issue.

Sexual violence is often underreported, even more so in traditional and patriarchal societies which view women as the bearers of the family’s honour and sexual assaults on women as shaming for the family’s men. Balsam, a national network of listening centres supporting women experiencing violence, reported that in 2013, 4,116 out of 29,532 cases of violence against women reported to the network were for sexual violence – about 14%. [3]

Nada, a non-governmental organization focusing on children’s rights, also reported an increase in sexual violence against children, including incest, of which both girls and boys are victims. [4]
