Civil Society and Social Movements

 

One cannot imagine that the crisis of party-line commitment faced by Egyptian political parties can be tackled or resolved without dealing with a key structural factor related to the process of establishing political parties following the Egyptian revolution. This was the historic moment that has ever since deeply affected the Egyptian political parties with its complications, manifestations, impacts and echo. The moments of the emergence of the Egyptian revolution and the first days of the revolution in the following 18 days were basically epic moments given the variety and diversity of the backgrounds of citizens and participants and the consensus reached by the crowd over the main demands raised at this time. This status dominated the scene in the first days of the revolution under the name and pretext of consensus.

The role of civil society in achieving social justice has emerged with its establishment in the very beginning, even if it was only excluded to the charitable aspect. The core idea was to improve the most marginalized and poor categories, even if the charitable work is not enough in that context. Civil society has reached a certain degree of maturity with the Arab revolutions. It attempted to play a pivotal role in achieving objectives of revolutions that raised certain slogans when they emerged and social justice was in the heart of them either directly or through other slogans such as Dignity and Liberty which are directed to social justice in a way or another.

Judiciary is one of the main pillars of balance between the three authorities and it plays an important role in the democratic transformation process. It is no doubt that the Arab Spring made radical changes in this field that created an important chance to enhance independence and neutrality of judiciary. The Status quo in the Arab world is confusing, thus, it created different reactions either from the judiciary itself or from different political powers. From here comes the importance of studying the status of judiciary in Arab constitutional documents to have a clear understanding of changes that happened to judiciary and to what extent it became independent.

It seemed that the Arab revolutions came at the backdrop of a somehow clear absence of the Left factions and forces at the level of action as well as at the level of political impact in the Arab street on the different causes and concerns of the citizens. Still, Leftist forces, old as well as other new ones, born from the womb of the conflict in the last years of the new millennium, have tried to play different roles in connecting with the waves of the Arab Spring and trying to reorganize their ranks and their political cards as players who are supposed to be the main ones in the roaring mass movement which is raising slogans calling for political, economic, and social rights that have been stolen from them over the past decades.
