The Egyptian Bureau for Cultural & Educational Affairs have the honour to invite you to “Egypt You Have No Match” – A Talk By the renowned Dr Ahmed El-Mokadem.

The Talk will be followed by Open Discussion. A Light Buffet will be served after the talk.

Based on 14 Strategic Diversified Pillars, a hypothesis is proposed, for appropriate testing, that “Egypt Has No Match”. Focused on one Pillar, the Geo-Strategic one, an in–depth empirical and analytical study is presented. Two novel instruments are used in the analysis; namely: Now-Casting, as opposed to Forecasting, and Geo-Dynamics, instead of Geo-Political.

Based on the thorough analysis, a proposal is advocated of a “Five-Pronged Strategy for Egypt, as a Stable Pivoting State”. It is claimed that the implementation for such Strategy would ultimately strengthen Egypt’s negotiating powers, strategically, not only in the Middle East, but perhaps in a much wider sphere of influence. It is hoped this study will represent the first coverage on the Geo-Strategic Pillar, to be followed by more studies covering the remaining 13 Pillars, hopefully confirming the hypothesis of Egypt as Having No Match.
