This one-day conference, organized by IRCPL Distinguished Visiting Scholar Emad Shahin and IRCPL Director Karen Barkey, will present a critical overview and analysis of the role played by both Egyptian and Western media in Egypt's post-January 2011 political transition. Particular attention will be paid to the lead-up to Egypt's July 3, 2013 military coup and the post-coup period. Presentations will address the current state of free expression in Egypt, and evaluate media professionalism in Egypt's news media. Experts will discuss how Egypt's press system may need to be restructured in order to facilitate a democratic turn.
