Egypt – Post Muslim Brotherhood and the Army

August 22, 2013

What Future for Egypt?

Dr. Gouda Abdelkahleq will be speaking about current events in Egypt at Beit Zatoun in Toronto today, Thursday August 22.

Egypt is going through its worst economic recession since the Great Depression, with high unemployment particularly among youth, capital flight, corruption, lawlessness, and depreciating currency. An elected President is deposed while millions of Egyptians demonstrated for change. What does the future hold for Egypt? Will democracy return to Egypt? Will the new government succeed in turning the economy around?

Dr. Gouda Abdelkahleq is Professor of Economics at Cairo University, he has an MA in Economics from UBC and a PhD from McMaster University. Dr. Abdelkahleq served twice as Minister in the the two governments post Mubarak and just turned down a ministerial post in the newly formed government.
