“Authoritarian Repression Under Sisi: New Tactics or New Tools?,” by Associate Professor of Government Kira Jumet, appears as a chapter in New Authoritarian Practices in the Middle East and North Africa. The edited volume was recently published by Edinburgh University Press.

The book focuses on micro-practices of repression in an examination of authoritarian practices that have developed following uprisings in the MENA region, countries in and around the Middle East and North Africa. The volume explores new forms of digital surveillance and protest policing practices, as well as new ways the judiciary, civil society, and media are controlled, and relates these new methods to past practices.
