This paper addresses the impact of globalization and restructuring on employment in Algeria in the last twenty years. Since 1990s, Algeria underwent major socio-economic structural changes through privatization and restructuring of the state industrial sector which profoundly transformed, among other things, the mode of economic organization and labor market structure. I will first examine the characteristics of Algeria’s industrialization process in the 1960s and 1970s, then discuss restructuring and deindustrialization processes and corresponding changes in labor market. I argue that globalization and restructuring processes have reversed the Algerian state development strategy of industrialization resulting in the casualization of work.
