Sudan and Algeria: Lessons from Egypt

Foreign Affairs posted on 10 June 2019 a commentary titled "What Algeria and Sudan Can Learn from Egypt: Lessons from a Failed Revolution" by Killian Clarke, Princeton University.

The author suggests that as Algeria and Sudan take their first steps toward democracy, they can draw on lessons from Egypt to keep their transitions on track. Egypt demonstrated that street protests have the power to influence the decisions of the military. It is important that the revolutionary forces in Sudan and Algeria remain united. Movements in both countries must also recognize the importance of cultivating foreign support.
