Whilst the world's attention may have shifted, Egypt is still on the march. The revolutionaries remain determined to keep up the momentum as new parties jockey for power and the old guard battles to preserve its influence.

Egyptians know what is at stake and are determined to get it right, but different groups are competing amongst themselves to set the agenda.

Will the military accept a new system that enshrines power in the hands of civilians?

Whose economic model can Egypt emulate?

And will an emergent Egypt once again play a dominant role in the region?

Egypt has begun the tortuous route out of decades of autocratic rule, as the revolution that inspired the world continues to evolve.

Empire brings together seasoned intellectuals and unrepentant militants to take stock of what has been achieved so far, and discuss what happens next.
