ALGERIA AND GLOBAL DIPLOMACY

Algeria has had significant roles in global diplomacy since the mid-1700s. Algeria’s role has not only involved its own relations with foreign powers, notably the complex negotiations leading to its independence from France in 1962. It has also involved relationships between foreign powers, either playing on antagonisms, as with the British-French rivalry in the late 1700s, or working to help mediate a conflict, as with the US-Soviet clash involving Cuba in 1962, or the Iran hostage crisis in 1980-81. Algerians have long had a role in efforts to mediate conflicts in Syria, from the 1850s to the present. One notable failure in diplomacy was the effort of the Catholic Community of Sant’ Egidio to mediate the conflict between the Algerian government and Islamists in Algeria’s civil war in 1995.

The Maghreb Review invites studies on this theme. They can be focused on specific incidents in Algerian history involving diplomatic relations; or on an effort to understand why this has been an enduring theme in Algeria’s history, for instance taking a geopolitical perspective. Studies might also focus on a particular individual who has had an important role in diplomacy, either an Algerian, such as Lakhdar Brahimi or Rida Malek, or a foreigner such as William J. Porter, the first US ambassador to Algeria after independence. Or a study could look at a group such as Algerians who developed their diplomatic skills living outside their country during the war for independence, or during the civil war of the 1990s. Studies could look at how some incidents in US relations with Algeria, such as Barbary pirates captive taking in the 1780s or the presence in Algeria of Black Panther leaders in 1969-72 were treated in the media.

Following the 60th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s 2 July 1957 speech to the US Senate, in which he called for negotiations to lead to the independence of Algeria, studies might take on a long term perspective on US relations with Algeria, or put recent developments in transformations of US relationships with Iran and with Cuba into historical perspectives involving Algeria.

HEALTH IN THE MAGHREB, THE MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA

The Maghreb Review, Volume 34. 1, 2009 was devoted to this topic. We intend to continue publishing original studies on this subject in the future. Therefore, we welcome papers in English or French from specialists.


History has shown us that Mankind has always been the focus of the studies that are based on different perspectives of various scientific disciplines. Our attention in future issues is to draw attention to the degrees of success, and to the problems encountered by health planners in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa, and to produce ways of providing information for related research and health care in the future. Governments should as far as possible involve local communities and not just insurance companies, who see patients as customers.

We welcome original contributions on the following topics:

1. Religion: prohibitions of certain medical practices in Islam and other faiths, in particular those such as human tissue in organ transplantation and cloning: (Ḥadīth, Fatwās, Qurʾān and Bible);

2. Sex: practices; Aids, policy and practice.

3. Economics: medicine: cost vs quality vs equity and safety.

4. Regulatory mechanisms, particularly in the import of medicines.

5. Humanitarian and Philanthropic contributions: We welcome original articles analysing the rule of philanthropic organisations, particularly in Africa and other countries where the health systems have very limited national resources to deal with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, recent swine flu and other tropical diseases. This research should explain how such philanthropic resources have changed people’s lives and whether their involvement has any political and financial influence on local or national politics.

6. Can the state cope with the growth of populations which live longer, while the cost of treatment is getting more and more expensive?

7. Earlier medical research by Muslims. The history of Muslim, Christian and Judaic medicine.

8. Treatment of cancer in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa.

9. The treatment of mental health in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa.

10. Issues of medical ethics and medical jurisprudence.

11. We are also interested in the subject of Medical Anthropology.

Our Conditions of Publication are available here on our website.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS 28 FEBRUARY 2019.
