In its annual country report on human rights in Algeria practices released March 2006, the U.S.marker Department of Statemarker noted the persistence of a number of human rights problems in Algeriamarker but credited the government with having taken several significant steps to strengthen human rights in 2005. Continuing problems listed in the report include failure to account for past disappearances, alleged incidences of abuse and torture of detainees, impunity, arbitrary arrest and prolonged pretrial detention, denial of due process, restrictions on civil liberties and freedom of religion, corruption, and discrimination against women and minorities. Improvements cited in the report include a significant reduction in the incidence of abuse, torture, and arbitrary arrest by security forces; a crackdown on government (including judicial) corruption; the strengthening of equal rights protections for women in the Family Code and Nationality Code; and an attempt to address under-representation of Berber interests in the Kabyliemarker by holding special regional elections in November 2005.

In 2008, the human rights situation in Algeria was examined by the UN Human Rights Council in its first Universal Public Review Session.
