The Egyptian constitutional referendum in January saw the approval of a new constitution by an overwhelming majority but was boycotted by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. With the interim government taking a hardline stance against Muslim Brotherhood supporters and Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announcing he will run for the presidency, the panel will question whether we are seeing a return to a military dominance of politics and what this means for the people of Egypt. In addition, they will consider the issues that will confront Egypt’s next government and how it could shape the country’s future.
