A special issue of MERIP on the Egyptian revolution includes four open-access articles

As the dramatic social changes in Egypt continue, every anniversary there is a call for reflections on how Egypt got to where it is, and where it is going. Last year, for example, I took part in a workshop at Oxford University entitled “The Egyptian Revolution: One Year On.” Now the winter 2012 issue of Middle East Report offers reflections on “Egypt: The Uprising Two Years On.”

Many of the articles are available through free on-line access. These include:

Reflections on Two Revolutions by Ahmad Shokr,

The Writing on the Walls of Egypt by Samuli Schielke and Jessica Winegar,

Egypt’s Popular Committees: From Moments of Madness to NGO Dilemmas by Asya El-Meehy, and

Egypt’s Music of Protest: From Sayyid Darwish to DJ Haha by Ted Swedenburg.

There are also a number of articles you must buy the issue to get. These include:

“Establisment Mursi” by Joshua Stacher

“Why the Egyptian Army didn’t shoot” by Hicham Bou Nassif

“Police impunity in Imbaba” by Matthew Hall

“Reconstituting the Coptic Community amidst revolution” by Paul Sedra.
