Egypt under Sisi: stability or turbulence?

Egypt under Sisi: stability or turbulence?

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi sworn in as Egypt’s new president earlier this month, appears poised to be the country's new strongman. Sisi takes office in the midst of a fierce campaign of repression against the Muslim Brotherhood and civil society activists and at a time of serious security threats within Egypt and the region. Will the new president be able to deliver stability – a product of a return to strong leadership, or will the reverse be true – that further crackdown will only result in more turbulence and insecurity? In this recording of an ECFR Black Coffee Morning, Issandr El Amrani from International Crisis Group, ECFR visiting fellow Aziz El-Kaissouni, and Michele Dunne from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace discuss these issues, led by ECFR policy fellow Anthony Dworkin.
