Egypt: Two years later, is democracy still far to reach?

While the European support to democratic transformation in Egypt might be suffering some fatigue, the effort of many Egyptians in the streets of Cairo is beyond any imagination. Facing various challenging moments, presidential declarations, voting on a new constitution and the polarization of the country, democracy and human rights activists are writing a new history of Egypt. But can we today describe Egypt as a democratic country? Is unconditional International-aid to the government of Egypt a lever for democratization or the contrary? What role is left for the International community to play? Is the Egyptian revolution following the path of the Iranian one? After the constitution, can we call the new Islamic Republic of Egypt? How is the Egyptian society reacting to these incredible changes?

To discuss these questions the EuroArab Forum has the honour to invite you to the debate:
