Within the framework of Egypt's liberalization process launched in the 2000s, different social movements emerged to contest political stagnation and poor economic conditions. Asking for more political openness, a better distribution of resources, and freedom, many grass-roots movements rallied a wide array of activists and citizens from different backgrounds. This mobilization effort paved the way for the eruption of the massive public uprising of January 25, 2011 leading to Mubarak's demise. The aim of this presentation is to shed light on the role of sociopolitical movements in the pursuit of democracy before and after the revolution.

All are welcome!  Refreshments will be served
