Email this to someonePrint this page
The following review is a summary of Critical Incidents witnessed by MEA Risk Analysts and as reported in Critical Incidents Tracker. For the week ending Sunday January 18th, the Maghreb region saw a decrease in the number of Critical Incidents by a rate of -18%. The number of destabilizing events fell from 140 this week vs. 115 in the previous. Despite a reduction in the number of incidents, the CIncidents Index, measuring the severity of those events and their impact on the region’s stability on a scale of 0.5 to 5.0 rose by 2% sequentially this week to settle at 2.08. The Index, as shown in the thermometer to the right for reference purposes, indicates that the Maghreb region remains a high-risk zone.

The North Africa Journal is a leading English-language publication focused on North Africa. The Journal covers primarily the Maghreb region and expands its general coverage to the Sahel, Egypt, and beyond, when events in those regions affect the broader North Africa geography. The Journal does not have any affiliation with any institution and has been independent since its founding in 1996. Our position is to always bring our best analysis of events affecting the region, and remain as neutral as humanly possible. Our coverage is not limited to one single topic, but ranges from economic and political affairs, to security, defense, social and environmental issues. We rely on our full staff analysts and editors to bring you best-in-class analysis. We also work with sister company MEA Risk LLC, to leverage the presence on the ground of a solid network of contributors and experts. Information on MEA Risk can be found at
