The Report: Egypt 2014

For millennia Egypt has been one of the most strategically important places on earth, and often one of its most culturally influential. Despite significant structural issues and the political instability of the past few years, it remains a country of great regional and global importance.

Egypt’s history has been marked by a host of dynasties, empires, regimes and governments, and it remains a leading regional power today. Since 2011 a state of transition has become a more or less permanent feature of Egypt’s political scene. However, the political situation seemed to have stabilised in late 2014, particularly after Abdel Fattah El Sisi was sworn in as president. A parliamentary election is expected in the first half of 2015, under the new constitution.
