Issue No. 4 of the Egypt Institute Journal, published in July 2016, included a number of political, strategic, economic, intellectual and legal articles, as follows:
1- ‘Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Policy Trends’, by Yomna Suleiman
The study addresses the general features of Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy, the attitudes of Clinton and American policy circles, and the impact of Clinton’s coming to power on the Middle East.
2- ‘The Russian Geopolitical Imagination and Eurasian Space’, by Amina Mostafa Dallah
The study attempts to answer the question of: How can Russia adopt the Eurasian expansionist perspective while suffering from various internal pressures?
3- ‘The Modern Arab State: Contexts and Distortions’, by Mohamed Affan
The study sheds light on some aspects of the modern Arab state’s crisis related to the circumstances of the moment of birth, on the occasion of the centennial of some of the foundational events of this moment, such as the “Hussein-McMahon Correspondence”, the “Sykes-Picot” accords, and the outbreak of the “Great Arab Revolution”, during the past one hundred years. The study concludes that this form of political organization in the Arab region during the last century has been characterized, in general, by lack of effectiveness, represented in: absence of political stability and spread of authoritarianism and dictatorship, a chronic crisis in political legitimacy, deterioration of economic development projects, spread of social injustices, and inability to achieve national independence or defense of national security effectively, depending on regional and international powers.
4- ‘The Egyptian Public Debt Crisis: An Analytical View’, by Dr. Ashraf Dawaba
The study addresses the dimensions of the Egyptian public debt crisis through an analytical view of its reality and future, its crisis and ways of treatment. The study concludes that Egypt suffers from a vicious circle of the growing public debt, both domestic and external. This was clearly demonstrated after the military coup on July 3, 2013, where the interests alone amounted to about a third of expenditures and about half of the revenues in the state budget, which reveals the extent of the danger threatening the Egyptian economy.
5- ‘Sinai Development Projects: Dimensions and Implications’, by Dr. Ahmed Zikrallah
The study explores how much the Sinai Development Project is serious. It reviews the most important projects under implementation on the ground in the Sinai Peninsula, and addresses the Arab role in these projects.
6- ‘The Problematic Relationship between the State and Society: The Case of the Ultras’, by Islam Ahmad Al-Rubaie Ahmed
The study is based on a major hypothesis: The ultras do not represent traditional social organizations that are often submissive to power.
