Quire 1 Isabel Quire Julia Lee POLS-241-002 10/02/19 Freedom House Egypt Report The Freedom House’s flagship annual report assesses the condition of political rights and civil liberties around the world, composed of numerical ratings and supportive descriptive texts for 195 countries and 14 territories. (Freedom House, 2018) Freedom House has tracked global trends in freedom for over forty years, analyzing electoral processes, political pluralism and participation, freedom of expression and belief, the rules of law, and individual rights. (Freedom House, 2018) Abdel Fattah al-Sisi first took power of Egypt in 2013 and continues to rule in an increasingly authoritarian manner. Political opposition is practically nonexistent, as both liberal and Islamic activists face criminal prosecution and imprisonment (Freedom House, 2019), and the government utilizes aggression and abusive tactics to combat persistent terrorism in the Sinai Peninsula as well as the Egyptian mainland.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
