Project Description: Our website, “2011 Egyptian Reform”examines issues of peace and democracy in the Middle East, with a particular emphasis on the 2011 revolution in Egypt. The issues of fair elections and reform are central to building stable democratic governments in the Middle East, and the events that occurred in Egypt in 2011 demonstrate the importance of fair elections. This website seeks to shed light on issues of fair election and reform in the Middle East. We chose Egypt because of the role of the people in producing change. We examined the significance of the social media, such as Facebook, in the revolution, and the United States’ relationship with Egypt. To familiarize our viewers with the Egyptian political system, we dedicated pages to former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak and the current political parties in Egypt. We hope that through our website citizens will recognize the importance of fair elections and democracy both in Egypt and throughout the world.
