A nuanced look and equal footing – Expectations towards the new German government: A view from Cairo

€ 7,90 incl. VAT

This article, featured in the ORIENT II 2022, provides the view from Cairo and covers – based on many conversations with decisionmakers from various government branches – Egyptian expectations towards the new German government in the realms of security, economy, sustainable development, development cooperation and human rights.

Relations between Egypt and Germany at large are excellent. Close cooperation can be found in many sectors of society and economy. The Egyptian perception of Germany is very positive, not least thanks to Angela Merkel. Whether the new German government can build on those merits will depend on how well it understands Egyptian needs, demands and sensitivities.
