The Egyptian Shura council and the international experiences, Arab Forum for Alternatives - 2012

The Egyptian Shura Council is one of the most controversial political bodies in Egypt, caught between those who support its continuation and those who believe it should be abolished. This is an old debate in Egyptian politics that dates back to the Council’s founding under President Sadat. However, this debate was given a boost in the wake of the revolution of January 25, 2011 in the context of attempts to revisit the past political legacy and build a new political system that meets current requirements. This book, published in 2012 by the Arab Forum for Alternatives and the Global partners, includes and a number of researchers review the experieces from several upper chambers in the parliaments. The book is also available in Arabic.
