ADVISORY: CAP and The Century Foundation to Host Former U.S. Central Command Commander Mattis and Egypt Experts to Discuss Four Years Since Egyptian Revolution
Washington, D.C. — The Center for American Progress and The Century Foundation will host a program on Friday, January 23, reflecting on the past four years of Egypt’s transition, featuring a keynote address by retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, former commander of the U.S. Central Command. The program will include an expert panel discussing the Center for American Progress’ new report, “A New Anchor for U.S.-Egypt Relations: Looking to the Future and Learning from the Past Four Years of Egypt’s Transitions,” authored by Brian Katulis and Mokhtar Awad.
It will also feature a discussion on The Century Foundation’s Thanassis Cambanis’ new book, Once Upon a Revolution: An Egyptian Story. In the book, the author argues that until the Egyptian government addresses root problems of economic and political grievances it will continue to face turmoil.
