Research and Markets: The Report: Egypt 2012

From the affairs of the ancient Mediterranean world through Ottoman times to today’s modern Middle East, Egypt has long been a dominant player in the politics and economics of the region. Egypt’s role in the Arab Spring, which began in 2011 and led to the ouster of octogenarian President Hosni Mubarak, proves that the country today is just as dynamic and forward moving as it was six millennia ago.

The last year and a half have carried Egypt through a radical political transformation, but it is clear that the overhaul that began on January 25, 2011 has already made gains to ensuring greater popular representation and improving accountability in the republic.
