After the Uprising
Egypt's January 25, 2011 Uprising was a major event of the early 21st Century. President Hosni Mubarak who held office for nearly 30 years, was toppled in 18 days. But the post-uprising period led to high degrees of instability and polarization. How can the energy and idealism from the uprising be channeled into building alternative political and social structures? During the turbulent post-uprising period (November 2012), Mohamed ElBaradei, Nobel Peace Laureate and then head of Egypt's liberal Constitution Party, reflects on why he and his supporters were unable to capture power after the fall of Mubarak. ElBaradei provides insights, drawing from modern management and diplomacy, about the importance of teamwork in building political structures.
