As reports of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s declining health continue, our authors weigh in on Egypt’s political future in a post-Mubarak world. Can Egypt change? Has it already changed? What are the kinds of changes it will need most in the coming years? 

Lisa Anderson takes a look at Egypt’s economy, arguing it has already seen quite a bit of change.

Steven Cook argues Egypt’s stagnant political institutions are its real barriers to change.

Michele Dunne traces the transformations Egypt has made in the last decade.

 

Steven A. Cook is the Eni Enrico Mattei senior fellow for Middle East and Africa studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. His latest book is False Dawn: Protest, Democracy, and Violence in the New Middle East.
