This study assesses the extent of local integration of Sahrawi refugees in Algeria, their host country for more than 45 years, by analyzing a set of legal, economic, and social indicators. The study utilises a descriptive analytical approach based on a survey, with a sample of Sahrawi refugees in Algeria. The study finds that the process of local integration of Sahrawi refugees in Algeria, despite its complexity, is almost complete in legal and social terms. Sahrawi refugees obtained a number of rights such as the right to education, health care, legal residency and freedom of movement both internally and externally. However, they suffer from dependence on humanitarian aid as a result of the lack of livelihoods, especially job opportunities, which forces the host country to work on finding fast and effective solutions to these problems. The protracted nature of the situation of Sahrawi refugees in Algeria and the conflict over their territory, the solution to which is not imminent in the short and medium horizon, calls for a focus on the process of local integration as a durable solution.
