Description:
Egypt and the United States have maintained formal relations for nearly a century.  During that time, the two countries have enjoyed considerable mutual benefits, in trade, security, and cultural exchange.  In the years since the Egyptian revolutions of 2011 and 2013, however, the relationship has faced a number of challenges, in each of these areas.  This panel will explore the two countries’ responses to these challenges, the issues that remain, and the opportunities that the relationship now presents.
