CISSM Forum | "Why did the Egyptian Revolution Stop at the Municipal Level?" | Diane Singerman

In the aftermath of protest and political change at the national level in Egypt, there has been very little democratic change at the local formal institutional level. One of the key demands of the 2011 uprising was social justice and this talk will analyze the increasingly difficult urban challenges of the mega-city of Cairo, as well as efforts among urbanists and activists to claim their right to the city. How does an understanding of the bureaucratic edifice of local politics in Egypt, contestation over the built environment, and comparative examples of urban change from other democratic transitions shed light on the Egyptian case? {Will appear in FYI on Oct 24, 2013
