ISPI MED Dossier | Egypt Ten Years On: What Happened to the “Arab Spring”?

Ispi MED Dossier edited by Alessia Melcangi, La Sapienza University and Atlantic Council and Giuseppe Dentice, ISPI and CESI

Ten years have passed since January 25th, 2011, a date that marked the beginning of the Arab Spring in Egypt.

What is left of the revolutionary movement that overthrew Hosni Mubarak’s regime? What role does the military play in today’s Egypt? Can a political space still be opened for the oppositions, including the Islamists? And, finally, what are Egypt’s regional and international priorities?
