"Egypt Now" is a public conversation with activist and entrepreneur Jawad Nabulsi, activist/engineer Ahmed Maher, and activist/producer Karim Amer (The Square)
In an unprecedented act of political activism and nationalism, Egypt's Coptic Christians participated in the monumental January 25th Egyptian Revolution. Despite years of political atrophy caused by the marginalization of the Coptic community, as well as discouragement by the late Pope Shenouda III to refrain from joining the protests, Copts felt it was a chance to finally have their voices heard.
"Egypt Now: From Revolution to Democracy" in the MENA-X (Middle East/North Africa Exchange) series presents three Egyptian Americans (Muslim, Coptic and Jewish) who will discuss Egypt's shifting landscape, from dictatorship to fledgling democracy, with particular emphasis on recent elections. The panel includes Suzie Abdou, Nile El Wardani and Juliana Maio who have all published articles on Egypt in the June 2012 issue of the Levantine Review.
