L’Égypte entre contraintes nationales et tensions régionales, ou comment les BRICs s’insèrent dans les rapports entre libéralisme économique et réformisme autoritaire

Abstract : This paper tries to evaluate Egypt’s situation as an intermediary status country with regional influence which has spun links with some BRICs so as to emancipate itself from North-American tutelage and compensate for Saudi Arabia’s – conditioned – financial aid. Our hypothesis is that the determination of external alignments comes essentially from national (social, economic, and security-linked) parameters. The volatile international context constitutes an extra element which influences the Egyptian government’s choices: increasing tensions between Washington and Moscow, Chinese willingness for regional self-assertiveness, European uncertainties. All these factors oblige the Egyptian government to navigate between different partnerships according to the time’s constraints, for the purchase of weapons and the choice of investors.
