Egypt Case Study

Robert Forster

Research output: Working paper


The Egyptian revolution of 2011 brought long-term political differences to the foreground of Egypt’s national consciousness. This case study traces how the issue of inclusion was negotiated during Egypt’s constitutional drafting processes in 2012 and 2013, and how the issue of identity raised by the constitutional drafting processes cemented political differences. It concludes that although the 2014 constitution provides for a greater level of inclusiveness on paper it has been marred by a crack-down that goes beyond the supporters of the former regime.
