Comparative Nonprofit Sector Working Paper #10 | Amani Kandil.
Discusses the way the nonprofit sector is defined and conceptualized in Egypt in light of three factors: state distrust of civil society, a rapidly changing political economy, and the rise of Islamic organizations, particularly in the nonprofit sector. Describes the major types of nonprofit organizations in Egypt and relates their challenges to tension between the State and religious groups and organizations.
