CCT Professor Adel Iskandar appeared on Al-Jazeera’s “The Stream” live yesterday, February 7th, to discuss the continued protests in Egypt.

In this episode of “The Stream”, Prof. Iskandar talked about Egypt’s once-powerful youth movement, which helped oust President Hosni Mubarak. Two years ago the country’s youth rejoiced as they rang in a new era of democracy. But today unemployment is still high, and for those entering the job market, opportunities are few and far between. Has Egypt’s youth movement backfired?
