Abstract

The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) organised an international conference in Montreux, Switzerland from 2 to 4 April 2014 to examine the relationship between the armed forces and citizens of Egypt. 

During the conference, the participants reviewed the current state of civil-military relations in Egypt and related challenges. Following an overview of the key role that the Egyptian Armed Forces have played in Egyptian politics for over 60 years, the participants turned to in-depth analysis of several critical issues in civil-military relations.
