With Egypt's military consolidating its political role, the Brotherhood excluded from political life, and Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi emerging as a charismatic, popular military leader possibly preparing to run for the presidency, many observers are drawing parallels between today’s Egypt and the era of Gamal Abdel Nasser.
Please join us on Wednesday, February 5
, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.
for a special roundtable luncheon featuring Maged Atiya, an Egyptian-American physicist and businessman who blogs about Egyptian politics and history
. Mr. Atiya will share his insights on the lessons, if any, the Nasser era offers to help us understand how the complex situation in Egypt today may evolve.
This private lunch is for a small group of Egypt-watchers.
Kindly note that this invitation is transferable only upon request.
A light lunch will be served.
Please use the West Tower elevators when you arrive.
