What is the impact of the Arab Spring on Egyptian citizens? How did the uprisings affect people's aspirations and their relationship with the state? 

To date there have been very few grounded studies examining how political changes affect people's wellbeing and aspirations. This research seeks to fill this gap by exploring ‘how’ rapid political changes affected deprived communities in Egypt. The study contrasts voices in rural and urban contexts thus presenting an inter-temporal and intra-case study analysis of political change in Egypt over time.
