Democratizing the New Egypt
I started the blog on January 25, 2011. I am a professor at the American University in Cairo. I teach public policy, particularly leadership and nonprofit management. My blog deals with issues related to the democratization of Egypt, and the Middle East. I also have written posts on Libya, Sudan, and other regional powers. I address issues such as womens' rights, radical Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Sharia law. I also look at issues such as dictatorship, the difference between Sunni and Shia Islam and military intervention in Libya. I occasionally have posts on information technology. I focus broadly on social issues including environmental matters. I address climate change, the flora and fauna one finds in the region, and issues concerning the River Nile. Sometimes I include stories about places I visit in Egypt, so that you get a sense of local color. My perspective is scholarly, it is African, and I try to be as even handed as possible.
