Shaping the Future - Fostering Civil Society Contributions to economic Reforms
Egypt’s new constitution was adopted following a public referendum that was held in early 2014. The constitution established the general framework for reforms and introductions of policies and laws that aim at achieving social justice.
In that context, FEDA will work with FES on some Egyptian laws that could require certain reforms in order to be aligned with the provisions of the new constitution and to respond to the Egyptians’ desire for social justice. The purpose of this project is to provide a platform for the aforementioned stakeholders (the government, civil society and the relevant private sector organizations) to discuss, collaborate and come up with mutual visions and proposals for the different social and economic laws and regulations that require reforms to be aligned with the provisions of the new constitution. These laws and regulations include social insurance, health care system, labor law, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) law, local administration.
