In a new article at Middle East Report and Information Project, Barnard College Professor Mona El-Ghobashy explains that recent protests in Egypt are a form social bargaining between the Egyptian population and the government:  “It is tempting, but misguided, to read the rise of social protest as auguring the downfall of the regime. The upsurge of popular mobilization is not a revolutionary trend, but a systemic change in how citizens defend their interests in the absence of formal mechanisms of representation.” El-Ghobashy notes that following the success of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2005, the National Democratic Party (NDP) “began a systematic restructuring of the political arena, changing the constitution and electoral laws, weakening the Muslim Brothers and strengthening the NDP’s party organization.” NDP will inevitably win a significant victory in November, El-Ghobashy says. The real question is “how the government maintains its dominance and at what cost.”
