Negotiating Space: The Evolution of the Egyptian Street, 2000-2011

Cairo Papers Vol. 32, No. 4

Dimitris Soudias

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

This monograph offers a diachronic analysis of the development of street protests in Egypt that led to the downfall of Mubarak in 2011. It shows how the January 25 uprising was the culminating episode of negotiating power relations in a series of five consecutive contentious cycles since 2000. Based on a conceptual framework combining premises of social movement theory, power and knowledge, and sociology of space, it argues that the negotiation of power relations in Egypt has been expressed through the 'battle' over socially produced protest spaces.
