6 Adult Literacy Research in Algeria It would not be within the bounds of proper scientific practice to discuss the kind or combination of literacy approaches and strategies taken into consideration for rural Algerian women without first reviewing the previous research on adult literacy in Algeria. However, this research is notably limited. Academic investigations of adult education in the Arab region are meager. So far only UNESCO and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) have published data specifically related to this subject.

It was first in 2007 that Algeria officially announced the validation and implementation of a National Strategy for the Eradication of Illiteracy (SNEA), which includes among its recent claims the attempt to target girls and women living in remote areas. The few available research works that have dealt with the topic of illiteracy consist of evaluations of the government’s endeavor to nationally address this issue. These are largely based on official ministerial and national literacy strategy documents and brief updates commissioned by UNESCO.

It should reflect the complex nature of this subject and offer some insight as to why this is not a straightforward task. Several attempts have been made at finding a suitable definition for ‘literacy’. Originally, the United Nations and other agencies interested in social change assumed one could infer literacy skills from a certain level of school attendance. In the meantime, due to the expanded scope that the study of literacy has undertaken, this definition and way of measurement have proven themselves rudimentarily inadequate.
