The Middle East Institute is proud to present an all-day conference titled “Securing Egypt’s Future.” The event brings together a range of Egyptian and American voices to examine recent political, social, and economic developments with the aim of providing recommendations and solutions for securing a more stable, prosperous, inclusive, and democratic Egypt.

The first panel of the afternoon, “Meeting the Needs of the Egyptian People,” will examine how individuals and institutions can work together to address the key social and economic demands that have driven Egypt’s recent  revolutions, namely “bread, freedom, and social justice.” The final panel of the day, “Engaging the International Community,” will examine the steps the international community can take to play a more constructive role in helping Egypt achieve its political, economic, and social goals.
