Others speakers to be confirmed
Chair: Kate Nevens, Manager, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House
After six decades of repression at the hands of the state, Egypt's Islamists are adjusting to life in the political spotlight. This event will examine the ways in which they are negotiating the contours of a political landscape that remains in flux. The speakers will discuss how the Muslim Brotherhood's ambitions have evolved in the post-Mubarak era, and how these have been affected by the success of Salafi groups. What kind of civil institutions do the different groups favour? And how will they deal will the continued presence of the military in political life?
Attendance is by invitation only.
