GIS Dossier: El-Sisi’s Egypt
Since coming to office in 2014, Egyptian President Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi has offered his country a mixed bag. He has brought stability and economic growth but cracked down on political opposition and dissident voices. Shunned by the West at first, he turned to Russia for support. Now, with a new administration in Washington, a fresh partnership is emerging. But Egypt’s economy is not out of the woods yet, and an insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula continues to simmer. This GIS Dossier examines how Egypt’s strongman leader has grappled with the country’s immense challenges and highlights our experts’ predictions for its future.
