Will Morsi bend?

Nearly two years after the fall of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt is suddenly polarized in a whole new way. President Morsi caught everyone by surprise on November 22nd when he decreed for himself broad sweeping powers. Then, last week, the Islamist-led constituent assembly rushed through a draft constitution. Protests have erupted across the country. François Picard and his panel discuss why the tension is so high and how the situation could be resolved.
