When it comes to describing, explaining, analyzing and assessing the role and contribution of public diplomacy and soft power to Algeria’s foreign policy, it is necessary to refer to the historical, political, economic and cultural contexts of the country in order to gain a better understanding of their evolution. In fact, the basic values and principles that continue to guide Algerian foreign policy have their roots in the revolution against French colonial, which had a worldwide impact. Thus, the notion of public diplomacy is relatively familiar to political and diplomatic actors in Algeria, however soft power concept remains confined to the academic sphere despite its importance nowadays. In sum, the Algerian revolution is and should be one of the main assests to be considered along side geo-strategic position, culture, diplomacy, tourism, sports and human and natural ressources as assets.
