The struggle in Egypt that began in 2011 and inspired people around the world is at a critical juncture. Amidst a deadlock between the Muslim Brotherhood and the opposition, the persistence of police brutality and state institutions of the old regime, and a looming economic crisis, the divide between political elites and people is growing ever wider. The panelists will discuss how much has changed since the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011 and the prospects for political change in the future.
