During the Arab Spring the Egyptian opposition stood together to overthrow Hosni Mubarak. When the regime was gone, however, this alliance fell apart. In particular the divide between religious and secular groups has been notable. Where does this struggle stand at present? What will be the consequences of the new constitution? Amal Wahab has covered the Arab Spring from Cairo as foreign correspondent for the Norwegian newspaper Klassekampen. Bjørn Olav Utvik is professor of history at the University of Oslo and an expert on Egyptian Islamism. They join Ibrahim El-Houdaiby in conversation on the future of Egypt.
