Since January 2011, those young activists who were so instrumental in driving the revolution are divided on how to stabilize Egypt and spur democratic reform. The country is grappling with political malaise and polarization, economic and energy crises, and threats to freedom of expression. The Hariri Center's EgyptSource blog is at the forefront of tracking these developments, offering a diverse range of opinions and analysis from external contributors, newsmakers, and opinion leaders. Join us for a discussion on the major challenges facing Egypt featuring unique on-the-ground perspectives from select EgyptSource contributors.
