Abstract:

Despite several well publicized problems -- rising violence from Islamic extremists, an uninspired political climate, and continued unemployment and poverty -- Egypts regime is in no immediate danger of collapse. Rather, the serious problems are long term. If a concerted attempt to address them is not made now, Egypts future and U.S. interests could be threatened. The workshop focused on four interrelated issues whether the political system can be revitalized without political upheaval whether Islamic activism can be moderated or effectively challenged by competing secular forces whether Egypts economic reforms can be sustained in the face of the painful political adjustments they will require whether the military will continue to play a stabilizing domestic role.
