My latest al-Masri al-Youm column, "In Sinai, Egypt must be tough but fair", is up. It's about the need for a different approach to Sinai's tribal politics.

I'll be in Geneva over the weekend for the International Institute of Strategic Studies' Global Strategic Review. I'll be taking part in a talk on Egypt and another one on the Arab spring, along with Sultan Qassemi, Karim Sadjapour, Emile Hokayem and other noted writers on Middle Eastern politics. We'll also be tweeting the whole thing with the tag #IISS_GSR.
