In 2011, the world watched as revolutions rocked the Middle East. Egypt, inspired by the ongoing protests in Tunisia that led to the fall of dictator Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali, ousted their own autocrat, President Hosni Mubarak, after citizens took to the streets. Two years later, the revolution in Egypt continues. What does the political climate in Egypt look like today? What happens next for the country, and what does it mean for the region? We unpack the on-the-ground story, explore the events between 2011 and today, and discuss the future of Egypt and the Middle East.
