Dr. Gamal Soltan

“The Egyptian media is blamed by everybody; revolutionaries and reactionaries, Islamists and secularists, military and civilians, activists and non-engaged citizens. I doubt this is a point of national consensus. Contributing to the public debate on this issue through the comparative systematic investigation of the role of media in democratic transition is what attracted me to MeCoDEM. Experience and knowledge obtained through my participation in MeCoDEM should enhance my research interest in Middle East politics, democratic transition, and the politics of democracy promotion.”
