AUC Tahrir campus

Tahrir Dialogue Series

After the extraordinary events of January 25, Egypt is hoping for a better future. The School of Global Affairs and Public Policy (GAPP) at The American University in Cairo (AUC) launched a new initiative to contribute actively to Egypt's development in this critical transitional phase. The Building Better Egypt Initiative's objective is to create awareness and promote broad debate among the Egyptian community around the changes and/or developments taking place in the political arena. 

The initiative focuses on four main tracks:

  • Managing the transition: Expectations and strategies
  • Restarting competitive politics: Egypt’s new parties
  • Ensuring media freedom: What is needed to protect freedom of the press
  • Constitution reform: The referendum and the revolution
