Countries in Transition: Egypt

After landmark parliamentary elections delivered a landslide victory to Islamists, Egypt’s transition is still very much in progress as the country’s diverse political forces and movements propose competing visions for the new constitution and economic system.  With presidential elections looming in late May, the leading candidates are facing off on the campaign trail for control over the post-revolutionary Egypt.  

The Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East and the Center’s blog, EgyptSource, will continue to provide breaking news coverage and analysis of Egypt’s unfolding transition. 

This page features a compilation of events, media appearances, EgyptSource blog posts and analysis from Egyptian contributors, and other publications on Egypt.
