Impact of the Socio-Economic Situation Post the Egyptian Revolution (2011)
Egypt’s socio-economic and political condition is becoming a controversial matter after seven years following the 2011 revolution. The authors are intending to shed the light on the Egyptian socio-economic and political condition after six years since the 2011 revolution; trying to analyze the whole situation from the local and international perspective. How does the world see us? And how do we see ourselves? What is the current socio-economic and political situation in respect to data and information gathered from domestic and international institutions? And how do Egyptian people perceive the economic and political situation in their country now? These are questions which the authors will try to answer in this paper in order to come up with a real picture of Egypt after seven years since the 2011 revolution internally and externally. Researchers will conduct a field study in order to come up with Egyptian citizens’ perspectives and opinions from diverse demographic background regarding the entire political and socio-economic condition in the country through a quantitative research. Finally, we’ll state conclusions and recommendations hoping to come up with adequate answers and solutions for many economic and political problematic issues.
