Four years after ouster of Mubarak, Egyptians ‘are tired of revolutions’

From police shootings at street protests to the killing or jailing or thousands of supporters of the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood, the list of alarming headlines out of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s Egypt grows longer by the day. Almost two years after Sisi ousted Egypt’s first democratically elected president Mohamed Morsi, and four years after a popular revolt ousted long-time strongman Hosni Mubarak, many Egyptians their country is veering off a democratic path.

Bernard Rougier is a Cairo-based specialist in Middle Eastern Studies, political science professor and co-editor of a new book, "Egypt in Revolutions". He tells us where he thinks today's Egypt is headed.
