Egyptian Constitutional Reform and the Fight against Corruption

By Zaid Al-Ali and Michael Dafel

“Egyptian Constitutional Reform and the Fight against Corruption” addresses the question of how a constitutional text can contribute to a commitment to prevent and eliminate corruption, investigating in particular the strengths and weaknesses of the 2012 Constitution, as compared to both the 1971 Constitution and Egypt’s experience under it and international constitutional trends in the fight against corruption.
