The conclusion assesses the relative place and significance of Algeria in contemporary France, and considers the ways in which the colonial and post-colonial relationship between the two countries can be negotiated. Drawing on Deborah Poole's notion of the ‘visual economy’ of the public sphere (Poole 1997), it explores what the visual fortunes of France's Algerian past tell us about the flows of political, social and symbolic capital in contemporary France and the role images play in shaping those flows. Building on the work of Etienne Balibar (1998), it argues for the paradigmatic status of the Franco-Algerian relationship for thinking firstly, about post-colonial relations and secondly, about the relationship between Western Europe and Africa, and the “North” and “South” more generally, in an increasingly globalised world.
