On January 25, 2011 thousands of Egyptians marched on the streets of all major cities chanting ‘eesh, horreya, ‘adala egtema’eya (bread, freedom, social justice) leading to the toppling down of the then president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, 18 days later, on February 11. It is worth alluding to the fact that this note is written on June 2, 2012, with a morning after effect following the sentence of Hosni Mubarak to life imprisonment in the so-called "trial of the century." Following the news, angry protests erupted in several cities in Egypt and thousands resorted to Tahrir Square, in what may seem to be back to square one, where it all started over 16 months ago. Since the toppling down of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt has been in an on-going process of transformation as events continue to unfold with the prospects of the re-run for presidential elections in less than two weeks. In the midst of this uncertainty and informed by our conviction that to better prepare for the future, we need to learn from the past, this issue of The Chronicles has emerged with a diverse, interdisciplinary collection of articles.
