Abstract:

Unemployment, Poverty And Demography: Although Egypt s economy grew strongly during the ----s and the country at- tracted substantial foreign direct investment (FDI), the rate of unemployment and poverty remains high, and this is compounded by rapid population growth and urbanisation. According to UN forecasts, Egypt s population will rise to ---.-mn by ----. ...Islamism And Religious Divisions: Egypt has several religious faultlines � between secularists and Islamists; moderate Islam- ists and hardline Islamists; and Muslims and Christians. Egypt under the National Democratic Party (NDP) and Mubarak was a largely secular state, but with Islamist parties having won two-thirds of the vote in the ---- parliamentary elections (the results of which were later made void by the Supreme Court), it initially appeared that the public strongly favoured a more Islamist polity. That said, the mass public protests that toppled President Morsi in July ---- suggest that large sections of society have become disillusioned with Muslim Brotherhood rule. ...Nevertheless, if Egypt follows Turkey s path, we would expect Cairo to adopt a more multi-vector foreign policy that includes more emphasis on relations with Middle Eastern states, as well as Russia and China.

While there are numerous weaknesses with opinion polling in

...opportunities The country is a major player in the Arab-Israeli peace process. ...we believe the government will remain on an authoritarian trajectory for the foreseeable future with only a modicum of democratic reform. Indeed, it is likely that President Sisi s government operates in a similar vein to Hosni Mubarak s regime before the Arab Spring with crackdowns on personal freedom due to security concerns but generally a benign political environment with only modest popular participation. with the Muslim Brotherhood s Freedom and Justice Party set to remain banned for the foreseeable future, the major political parties will be the secular groupings within the national Salvation Front and the Salafist Al-nour party. ...
