January 29, 2014 – Conference: "Egypt & The Struggle for Democracy." Events in Egypt during the last year have been as controversial as they have been crucial, both to Egypt's future and that of the Middle East. Egypt's political path since its first free and fair democratic elections in 2012 has been tumultuous: popular protests against an elected president, his ousting by the army and the subsequent bloody crackdown on those who have opposed the coup. This conference took up the question of how these developments unfolded and what lay ahead for Egypt. It drew on noted experts on Egypt from the US and Europe as well as political activists and analysts from Egypt.
