Title of the Talk: Democracy and Sharia in Egyptian context

Speaker & bio:

Dr. Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh

Dr. Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh was born in the old Cairo district to a family which was originally from the Gharbia Governorate. He graduated from Cairo University School of Medicine with honors in 1976 and received a Bachelor’s Degree of Law from the same university. He went on to attain a master’s degree in hospital management from the Helwan University’s Faculty of Commerce.

He is known for his staunch opposition to the Sadat and Mubarak regimes as well as his openness towards people of different political ideologies, a subject of controversy among supporters of Egyptian Islamic movements and organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Formerly affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood since the early 1970s, Aboul Futouh had been a member of the Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau from 1987 until 2009. In 2011 he formally quit all political work with the Muslim Brotherhood and resigned from its membership, following his decision to run for president in the presidential election in 2012. He is currently the secretary-general of the Arab Medical Union.
