America Abroad explores what lies ahead for Egypt’s fragile democracy in this international town hall discussion connecting audiences and a panel of experts in Los Angeles and Cairo.
The conversation explored the Muslim Brotherhood’s future in Egyptian politics; the role of Islam in politics and public life; what the military’s recent government takeover means for Egypt’s fragile democracy; and how Americans perceive recent developments in Egypt.
