Introduction

Egypt Institute Journal Issue 17 published in January 2020, included a number of political, strategic, economic, intellectual, and legal articles, as follows:

1- ‘Informality between Tyranny of Power and Silence of Society’, by Dr. Seif El-Din Abdel-Fattah (Egypt)

This study addresses the phenomenon of informality which represents accumulation of exceptional cases that continue and spread, leading to several negative effects. Among the most prominent reasons that allow empowerment of informality is the phenomenon of power or authority and its perceptions towards itself and others, as well as the state of indifference and lack of awareness that dominates a society. The study concludes that: authoritarian power + indifference and lack of awareness in society = accumulation and devotion of the phenomenon of informality.

2- ‘Geopolitics of Emotion: A Reading in Fear, Humiliation, and Hope’, by Dr. Keza Fanni (Algeria)

This study seeks to answer the question: What is the future of Arab countries in light of the cultures of fear, hope, and humiliation and to what extent are they able to transform emotions of fear and humiliation into feelings of trust and hope?

3- Geopolitics of the Middle East under the Deal of the Century’, by Dr. Mohamed Abu Saada (Palestine)

The paper seeks to explore the future geopolitical effects of the American deal known as the “deal of the century” on several Middle East countries. It has become clear that the deal aims to terminate the file of the Arab-Israeli conflict related to the Palestinian issue. Given its ramifications, the Palestinian issue can only be terminated at the expense of several neighboring countries, through redrawing borders to form the expected “New Palestine” State, which will mostly be at the expense of Egypt. According to the deal, the issue of Palestinian refugees is expected to be resolved at the expense of Jordan and Lebanon.

4- ‘Turkey, Libya and Geopolitics of Energy in the Mediterranean’, by Jalal Salmi (Palestine)

The study proceeds from assuming that Ankara has signed the memoranda of understanding with Libya’s UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) within the framework of a legal maneuver, as Ankara has not signed a final agreement with GNA, based on its awareness of the need to ratify the final agreements by Parliament. However, Turkey wanted to test the pulse of the Mediterranean basin actors and explore their positions by activating these memos, and then move according to these positions.

5- ‘National Sovereignty and Current International Relations Transformations’, by Dr. Khaled Al Toumi (Libya)

This paper raises the need to answer new developments arising from the reality of questions related to the future of national sovereignty in light of the modern international orientation network related to economic, social, cultural and political changes, that are produced by the new global system. Thus, it arouses the interest of statesmen and policymakers.

6- ‘Ethnic Federalism in Ethiopia: Foundations and Institutions,’ by Dr. Khairy Omar (Egypt)

This article examines the performance of the political system in Ethiopia, its approach to settling the national issue and national integration, through analyzing the intellectual formulas to build the political system and the policies that have been adopted in formation of power and political parties, given that these components may help in identifying the course of politics in Ethiopia.

7- ‘Methodological Controls for Studying Public Policies’, by Ahmed Mohsen (Egypt)

This study seeks to answer the following questions: Can the Arab Spring affect the public policy researcher and the way of addressing issues? What are the distinctions and differences if there are any? How can a public policy researcher in the Arab world address the context of the Arab Spring in a way that may lead to better results for produced studies and papers as well as the Arab countries and peoples?

8- ‘Egyptian Diplomacy: Current Situation and Prospects for Change’ by, Omar Samir Khalaf (Egypt)

This paper aims to study, analyze and track developments of the role of Egyptian diplomatic apparatus before and after the revolution. It addresses the issue of state diplomacy and regime diplomacy, as well as the concept and meaning of the role of diplomacy, whether in making or implementing foreign policy. The study explores whether the role played by Egyptian diplomats is governed by the vision, orientation, and trend of the Egyptian diplomatic apparatus, or they are merely civil servants subject to directives and orientations of the regime?

9- ‘Conditional Protest: A Reading in Mobilization of September 20, 2019’, by Wissam Fauad (Egypt)

This study is an attempt to understand the framework of the “September 20 mobilization”, and why the researcher calls it “a conditional protest contract”? Does this conditionality mean that Egyptians reversed options of January 25 revolution? What is the alternative to ‘conditional protest’? What are these conditions? And why Egyptians insist on that ‘conditional protest’? Will the criteria for judging the “September 20 mobilization’ apply to any coming mobilization?

10- ‘Militarization of Administration of Egyptian Ministry of Transport: Manifestations and Impact,’ by Amgad Hamdi (Egypt)

The article seeks to monitor aspects of the militarization of the administration and decision-making positions in various sectors of the Ministry of Transport, identify the reasons that contributed to militarization of the Ministry of Transport, and discuss the problems arising from summoning leaders from outside the institution to manage it and the impact of this on the human cadres in the ministry and the decisions of officials coming from outside the institution. The study also addresses the effect of controlling reins of management in any institution by leaders belonging to one faction, and the impact of the control of military leaders on a civilian institution in terms of accountability and decision-making.

11- ‘Political Transitions and Educational Policies in Tunisia’, by Soraya Arfaoui (Tunisia)

This study seeks to explain the impact of political transformations on the reality of education in Tunisia, considering the political dimension directly related to the educational dimension, the argument of the relationship between them, and the total results achieved in different periods of Tunisia’s history, starting from independence up to January 14, 2011 revolution.

12- ‘Egyptian Agricultural Policies: Patterns and Implications’, by Omar Samir (Egypt)

This article addresses the Egyptian agricultural policies, the giant agricultural projects that serve major corporations, the policy of production for export, and controlling the production of milk and focusing it in the hands of these major companies. The paper also addresses the crisis of likely severe shortage in water, raising several questions about the decline from defending water rights to accepting anything and attempting to adapt to impositions of the general state of weakness in the internal and external policies that dominate Egypt.

13- ‘The Army in Ancient Egypt and Its Role during War and Peace’, by Dr. Hussein Duqeil (Egypt)

The study addresses the importance of the army in ancient Egypt, and its role in peace and war, through two topics and a conclusion with the most important results reached by the study.
