Blueprint for Overcoming Egypt’s Economic Crisis

Amidst the intensifying currency crisis and the deteriorating economic sector in Egypt, the Egyptian Human Rights Forum, in collaboration with economic researcher Magdy Mandour, presents a policy paper addressing the role of the current political regime in causing the country’s economic crisis. The regime heavily focuses on consolidating power in the hands of the military establishment at the expense of other social forces. The paper attempts to analyse the symptoms and causes of the crisis and its long-term impacts, while also offering recommendations and proposals for moving forward. It aims to be a working paper that sparks discussion, acknowledging the complexity of the issues at hand and the conditions that led to the crisis, necessitating further research and analysis for a better understanding of the subject.

Full paper: Blueprint for Overcoming Egypt’s Economic Crisis

Diaspora Deliberations is a series of policy papers based on extensive deliberations and consultations sponsored by the Egyptian Human Rights Forum regarding the state and future of human rights in Egypt. These deliberations involved a group of human rights defenders, academics, and civil society activists currently residing in European countries, the United States, Turkey, and Qatar. The papers represent an initial attempt to understand the roots and background of the deteriorating human rights situation in Egypt, and an effort by the contributors to propose visions and alternatives that could form a long-term agenda for engaging with human rights policies in Egypt.
