After the Leaderless Revolution: Political Power in the New Egypt

Chatham House, London


HE James Watt CVO, British Ambassador to Egypt 


The Egyptian revolution of January 2011 was largely unexpected and virtually spontaneous. The year since has seen an inconclusive tussle between political forces that has dissipated the drive of the revolution and inflicted damage on the country's economic life. James Watt will consider what lies ahead for the governance of Egypt, now that the parliamentary elections have opened a new chapter.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
