Egypt and the Contradictions of Liberalism

On April 25th, CGP co-sponsored a successful book discussion at Busboys and Poets with CGP’s Senior Fellow Dalia F. Fahmy and Daanish Faruqi. The panel, moderated by Shadi Hamid, provided an essential and unique commentary on the complex dimensions of post-revolution Egypt and discussed the question of whether or not there is still room for democracy in the country’s future. The discussion was based on their latest book, Egypt and the Contradictions of Liberalism, in which they investigate how prominent Egyptian liberal activists came to support the country’s counterrevolutionary forces.
