Gender, Citizenship, and the Role of NGOs in Selected Arab Countries: Case Study of Egypt

January 2005

This study includes global changes that have led to the emergence of a number of new concepts, including human development and economic, social, political, cultural and civil rights. In addition, this study highlights the necessity to allow the participation of women in the society and to achieve gender equality. It focuses on the role of the civil society as a key actor in the process of change, which could be demonstrated through the role of NGOs. The study is divided into two main sections: the first section includes the theoretical part and identifies the background and context of the study while the second section examines the outcome of a field study conducted on certain NGOs in Egypt.
