Egyptian Diplomacy: Current Situation and Prospects for Change
This paper aims to study, analyze and track developments of the role of Egyptian diplomatic apparatus before and after the revolution. It addresses the issue of state diplomacy and regime diplomacy, as well as the concept and meaning of the role of diplomacy, whether in making or implementing foreign policy. The study explores whether the role played by Egyptian diplomats is governed by the vision, orientation, and trend of the Egyptian diplomatic apparatus, or they are merely civil servants subject to directives and orientations of the regime?
