Egypt: Between Revolution and Co-optation
Join Middle East expert Adam Hanieh for a UNAC educational conference call
on Sunday July 10th at 4pm EDT. He will speak and answers questions about
the prospects and challenges for the ongoing Egyptian Revolution and Arab
Spring. In particular he will discuss how the U.S. and its allies are
attempting to hijack the revolution through a $20 billion aid package. The
U.S. hopes to buy off popular forces and get them to accept further
neoliberalization of their economy.
Hanieh is a lecturer in Developmental Studies at the School for Oriental and
African Studies at the University of London. He analyzed the U.S. strategy
of coopting the revolution in a widely distributed article,
<http://eprints.soas.ac.uk/11836/> 'Egypt's 'Orderly Transition'?
International Aid and the Rush to Structural Adjustment.' He is the author
of the forthcoming book, Capitalism and Class in the Gulf Arab States.
