  • Informal Areas: Shortcomings and New Perspectives in Post-graduate

    • Authors: Heba Safey Eldeen
      Abstract: Based on the argument that Cairo’s recent urban development projects took place at the expense of the urban poor, this article aims to reconsider the processes of urban practices towards informal areas in Egypt. Until now, solutions put forth by the government have been informed by physically-oriented thinking: upgrading and merging informal areas within formal city districts, buffering them, or eradicating them. In this regard, these are approaches that ignore the social aspects of informal neighbourhoods. Moreover, there has been a long-term inability of the government and the private sector to provide enough affordable accommodation for a majority of urban dwellers. This article argues that one of the reasons for the discrepancies in informal neighbourhood policy originates in the way they are tackled in local architecture school curricula. Courses dedicated to informal areas focus on the gap between the designer’s anticipations and actual use; this is partly due to the designer’...

  • Mubarak’s Promise. Social justice and the National Housing
           Programme: affordable homes or political gain?

    • Authors: Yahia Shawkat
      Abstract: Even in the absence of a constitutional article declaring the right to adequate housing – first introduced in the 2012 constitution – the Government of Egypt has taken it upon itself to build subsidised housing, which has made up nearly a third of all housing production in its heyday (World Bank 2007) .
      But despite the billions in public funds spent on such programmes, hundreds of thousands of people risked their lives to overthrow the Mubarak regime in early 2011, mostly on grounds of unmet social goals. If these large investments in public housing programmes did not achieve their advertised social goals, were there other unadvertised goals that they did achieve?
      This paper assess the most recently “completed” programme, the National Housing Programme (NHP), or “Iskan Mubarak” ( 2005 to 2012), in light of the track record of clientelism that post Infitah regimes have been known for, using pragmatic parameters such as the International Covenant for Economic, Social and Cultural Right...

  • The Politics and Governance of Implementing Urban Expansion Policies in
           Egyptian Cities

    • Authors: Mohamed Nada
      Abstract: Managing urban expansion is very critical to cities’ prosperity and sustainability, however very little is known about the factors that hinder the implementation of policies formulated to manage urban expansion. This research explore these factors in relation to three policies implemented by the Egyptian government, namely the application of: urban growth boundary, detailed planning in urban expansion areas, and betterment levy. The key methods used in the primary data collection were qualitative in nature. The research gives special emphasis to the impact of actors’ capacity, behavior, and modes of interaction at the different levels, as well as the role of formal and informal institutional set-up and wider policy setting on actors’ behavior and modes of interaction, especially after the 25th of January revolution. The research concluded that there are number of interlinked factors hindering the implementation of policies investigated, most importantly are the long standing history...

  • L’Égypte urbaine : de la révolution vers
           l'État ? Gouvernance, urbanisme et justice sociale

    • Authors: Kareem Ibrahim, Diane Singerman
      Abstract: Trois ans après la révolution égyptienne, les demandes pour davantage de justice sociale continuent d’être exprimées mais demeurent largement frustrées. Nombre de ces demandes ont trait au développement urbain, recouvrant une distribution spatiale plus équitable des services publics, la démocratisation des processus de planification et de gouvernance locale, et des politiques de développement urbain au service de l’intérêt général plutôt qu’à celui de résidents aisés, d’investisseurs étrangers, ou de spéculateurs immobiliers. L’actuel système administratif local manque de représentativité et ne permet pas la participation citoyenne. Récemment, un nombre croissant d’initiatives a cherché à bâtir des relations plus réciproques entre les communautés urbaines et l’État. Le gouvernement reste cependant hésitant à encourager la démocratisation des administrations et politiques locales et une meilleure représentation à l’échelon local. Au lieu de cela, il continue de concevoir et de réalis...

  • Urban Egypt: On the Road from Revolution to the State? Governance, the
           Built Environment, and Social Justice

    • Authors: Kareem Ibrahim, Diane Singerman
      Abstract: Three years after the Egyptian revolution, demands for social justice continue to be articulated but remain largely unfulfilled. Many of those demands revolve around the need for urban development, including more equitable spatial distribution of public services, further democratization of planning processes and local government, and urban development policies which serve the general public, rather than wealthy residents, foreign investors, or real estate speculators. Unfortunately, the current urban local administrative system lacks representativeness and does not allow for local participation. More recently, there have been a growing number of mobilized initiatives that are searching for ways to build a more reciprocal relationship between urban communities and the state. Yet the government remains ambivalent to further democratize local administration and local politics and increase representation at the local level, and continues to design and implement plans that do not address...

  • Mobilisations pré-révolutionnaires : quand les habitants
           des quartiers populaires du Caire (se) manifestent

    • Authors: Agnès Deboulet, Bénédicte Florin
      Abstract: Cet article interroge l’origine et la continuité des mobilisations au Caire, une décennie avant la période révolutionnaire, en s’intéressant en particulier au nouveau destin des habitants des quartiers périphériques pauvres, souvent décrits comme informels. Les deux auteurs convergent dans leur analyse : ce n’est pas tant la misère que la cristallisation d’un sentiment d’injustice qui doit être interrogée et ce dernier trouve des éléments d’explication dans les mobilisations antérieures pour le droit au travail, le droit au logement et, plus largement, la justice. Dans le prolongement de ce raisonnement, il s’agit de voir comment ont évolué les expressions publiques du mécontentement dans deux situations urbaines proches. La première provient d’enquêtes de Bénédicte Florin sur les Chiffoniers qui sortent de la marge en manifestant suite à des actions très contestées du gouvernement et à certaines conséquences de la libéralisation du secteur et de sa reprise en main autoritaire. La s...

  • When Revolution Meets Design Studio: Initiating academic debate on
           “a new urban order”

    • Authors: Nabeel Elhady, Omar Nagati
      Abstract: In the context of the January 2011 Revolution, architects and planners in Egypt were inspired by the revolutionary process. They envisioned new modes of pedagogy and professional practice. This paper exposes an initiative led by the Architectural Department at Cairo University to develop the 2011 graduation project as a contribution to the ongoing restructuring of the city and public space into citizen-initiated and inclusive settings for emerging social and political orders. This paper documents the work of 16 students, each with his or her particular site and project, within the broader framework of the “Building Legitimacy” mashru‘ (project). It critically discusses the limitations and challenges encountered during the process and reflects on the capacity of the Studio to contribute to the wider urban debate in Egypt.

  • Post-Revolutionary Urban Egypt: A New Mode of Practice?

    • Authors: Kareem Ibrahim
      Abstract: Since the 25 January 2011 Revolution, Egypt has been witnessing increased mobilization especially when it comes to urban development. This has reflected on the relationship between ordinary citizens, and their neighbourhoods and cities. In parallel, many professional have become more engaged in this field – calling for the “Right to the City” and demanding more social justice in our urban development policies and practices.
      Can this be called a "new mode of practice"? Has the revolution been a decisive moment when urban development practices in Egypt shifted from their path? This article argues that this is not the case, and that the current mobilization is just another milestone on the path of a long movement calling for an alternative urban development practice since the 1940s. It is a movement that stands against a high-modernist top-down urban development paradigm that still prevails on the scene in Egypt.
      This article seeks to trace the path of this movement and how it evolved ov...

  • Des villes en révolte contre la « tyrannie de la
           majorité » ou comment empêcher l’émergence
           d’un pouvoir rural ?

    • Authors: Robert R. Bianchi
      Abstract: Au cours des 29 mois qui séparèrent la chute du régime dictatorial de Moubarak et le coup d'état militaire contre le gouvernement démocratiquement élu de Mohammed Morsi, près de trente millions d'Égyptiens ont voté à quatre reprises : au référendum constitutionnel de mars 2011, aux élections législatives de novembre 2011 à janvier 2012, aux élections présidentielles de mai à juin 2012 et, enfin, pour le référendum constitutionnel de décembre 2012. En dépit d’alliances fluctuantes lors de ces batailles électorales, la tendance de ces suffrages révèle une domination du Parti de la Liberté et de la Justice (Frères musulmans), ancrée dans les capitales provinciales et les villages du delta du Nil, ainsi qu’en Haute-Égypte. Dans le même temps, les vestiges du régime de Moubarak se sont alliés avec les élites locales (‘ayan) en relation avec le Parti Wafd et des groupes chrétiens rattachés au « Bloc Égyptien », afin de mobiliser une coalition d'opposition basée dans les quartiers les plus...

  • Urban Backlash against Democracy: Battling the Tyranny of the Majority or
           the Rise of Rural Power?

    • Authors: Robert R. Bianchi
      Abstract: During the 29 months between the overthrow of the Mubarak dictatorship and the military coup against the democratically elected government of Muhammad Mursi, about thirty million Egyptians voted in four major national polls – the constitutional referendum of March 2011, the parliamentary elections of November 2011-January 2012, the presidential elections of May-June 2012, and the constitutional referendum of December 2012. Despite the shifting alliances and counter-alliances that characterized these electoral battles, voting patterns reveal a consistent nationwide dominance of the Freedom and Justice Party that was rooted in the provincial capitals and villages of the Nile Delta with particularly enduring strength in Upper Egypt. Eventually, holdovers from the Mubarak regime allied with local elites (‘ayan) connected to the Wafd Party and with Christian groups tied to the Egyptian Block in mobilizing an opposition coalition that was centered in the more prosperous districts of Cairo...
