The main questions that this paper seeks to answer are: Is this optimism based on realistic foundations? Is Biden really able to adopt trends and policies that can support the process of political change in the Arab region in general, in Egypt in particular? Are there restrictions that may limit the adoption of such policies? The paper is divided into two main sections: the first topic is about the general determinants of the Biden administration’s foreign policy; the second topic is about the attitudes of the Biden administration towards political change in Egypt, its determinants and indicators.
