Summary
The decolonization of Algeria represents a turning point in world history, marking the end of France's colonial empire, the birth of the Algerian republic, and the appearance of the Third World and pan-Arabism. The Algerian war of national liberation therefore constitutes an inescapable reference for today's global citizen. Students and educators must recognize the broader implications of the Algerian War and adopt innovative pedagogical practices to identify and learn from historical misrepresentation. These objectives are imperative given the West's misunderstanding and mischaracterization of Islam and the Muslim-majority world
