Egyptian state security and its endless violence? Who did it really serve and did the Egyptians really need it?

By K. Hammond

Abstract

This paper looks at Mubarak's state violence as a paradigm for what Egyptian Ministers termed 'security'. The pattern of violence was not limited to Egypt but was representative of the situation across the whole MENA region. It looks at the state monopoly on violence and describes the non-violent way that Kifaya was able to overthrow Mubarak's oppressive regime
