To understand the extent to which youth are excluded in the Egyptian public and political
spheres, this paper poses various questions: What are the strategies enacted by the Egyptian
state towards youth today? Which state institutions are concerned with youth? Are these
institutions developing clearcut policies for the empowerment of youth? To answer these
questions, the paper will provide an overview about the regime’s policies towards youth from
Mubarak to al-Sisi. It shall give a critical analysis of how these regimes have dealt with youth
socio-economic and political issues from the 2000s decade onward. Once the manifest state
youth policies are pointed out, an analysis of the causes of youth exclusion will follow.
