Urban Growth and Housing Policy in Algeria

by Boudebaba, Rabaeh

This is the outcome of an intensive study of migration, urbanization and urban settlement in a developing country. It examines these processes in the context of the sociology of development and includes a detailed discussion of migration and urban housing in Algeria. The main aim is to assess the way in which the extended period of insecurity, poor housing and migration in Algeria affected the families concerned and their relationship with the community and local authority.
