Le présent rapport est une mise à jour du COI Focus daté du 28 septembre 2017 qui a pour titre Le retour des demandeurs d’asile déboutés. Il s’intéresse à l’attitude des autorités algériennes vis-à-vis de leurs ressortissants de retour après avoir quitté illégalement le pays et/ou avoir introduit une demande de protection internationale (DPI) en Belgique et/ou y avoir séjourné. Le traitement que réservent les autorités aux ressortissants de retour en raison de leur profil politique, ethnique, religieux ou terroriste ne fait pas l’objet de cette recherche.
