How the Death of Egypt’s Former President Shows Changing Politics

| July 01, 2019

Deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi fainted and died during an appearance in a Cairo court last month, part of an ongoing and likely politically motivated espionage case stemming from his escape from jail during the 2011 uprisings. The country’s first democratically elected president was unceremoniously buried the next morning in a public cemetery located in the capital, after Egyptian authorities refused his family’s request to bury him in the family plot in his hometown.

Mohammad Morsi in Life and Death Mirrors Wider Arab Agonies

| June 17, 2019

BEIRUT — The death today of former elected President Mohammad Morsi of Egypt should be seen as perhaps the single most iconic moment of modern Arab political history. For he represented everything that is good and bad about political authority and governance in the past century of Arab statehood. Yet his legacy will only be fully clarified in the decades ahead when the fate of the ongoing Arab uprisings is also clear.

الانتخابات الإسرائيلية 2019: التفاعلات الداخلية والانعكاسات الخارجية

| Apr. 25, 2019

شكَّلت الانتخابات الإسرائيلية التي أُجريت في 9 أبريل/نيسان 2019، إلى حد ما، استفتاء على حكم نتنياهو كرئيس للوزراء والمستمر منذ العام 2009، حيث لم يضع أي من المرشحين الرئيسيين التسوية مع الفلسطينيين عنصرًا أساسيًّا في حملته الانتخابية. أظهرت نتائج الانتخابات فوزًا واضحًا لقوى اليمين واليمين المتطرف وهو ما سوف يرسخ هيمنتها على المشهد السياسي الإسرائيلي خلال السنوات القادمة. تعالج هذه الورقة تطبيقات نتائج الانتخابات المختلفة على الوضع الإسرائيلي الداخلي، وفرص التسوية السلمية مع الفلسطينيين، والعلاقات العربية-الإسرائيلية في ضوء التنازع الإقليمي مع إيران وحلفائها في المنطقة. تجادل الورقة بأن المجتمع الإسرائيلي يتجه أكثر من أي وقت مضى منذ توقيع اتفاق أوسلو، عام 1993، نحو اليمين وهو ما سيعمل على إذابة فرص إقامة دولة فلسطينية مستقلة مع تجاهل الدول العربية الفاعلة لذلك.

The Brexit Breakup Gets Messier

| Mar. 27, 2019

Divorce is painful, especially when a marriage has lasted for more than 40 years and lives and finances are deeply intertwined. Emotions run high, assets are contested, and countless details need to be addressed. The June 2016 decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union has been no different: divorce negotiations have set off a heated debate about the United Kingdom’s future relationship with the European Union and strained arrangements with Northern Ireland and Scotland.
