Revolution and Social Transformation in Egypt

Revolution and Social Transformation in Egypt

PUBLIC EVENT: Round table session held at the "Political Economy of Poverty and Social Transformations of the Global South" workshop.

10-12 December 2012 | Cairo, Egypt

CROP co-organised the workshop with the Arab and African Research Centre (AARC), the American University in Cairo (AUC), the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the South-South Exchange Programme for Research on the History of Development (SEPHIS), December 10–12, in Cairo, Egypt.

The public roundtable concluded the workshop by relating its theme to the social and political transformations currently unfolding in Egypt. Three distinguished female scholars — Karima Korayem (Professor, Al-Azhar University), Shahida El Baz (Director, AARC), and Hanan Sabea (Professor, AUC) — explicated the conditions that paved the path toward political change in their country and examined the possible implications of the current revolutionary process on social and economic patterns that condition poverty reduction and prevention.
