Revolutionary Egypt Five Years On

A panel discussion exploring the repercussions of the Egyptian revolution

It is half a decade since Egypt’s revolution first erupted, promising something more than a binary choice between Islamism and military authoritarianism. Yet since the unrest began we have seen the Muslim Brotherhood rise to power, only to be overthrown by an army strongman – but is this just the start? What has become of the big ideas at the root of the uprising – about democracy, sovereignty, social justice and resistance? How can a country so divided between two irreconcilable political orders continue its revolution? Join The Frontline Club to discuss where the Arab World’s most populous nation stands today, as well as its possibilities for the future. Valid IDs may be required.
