Dr Andrea Teti on Egypt's recent bombings

Andrea Teti analyses the causes and significance of Egypt's recent tragic bombings

Project director Andrea Teti apoke to Mhairi Stewart on BBC Scotland's premier drivetime programme, Radio Scotland Drivetime. Dr Teti analyses the precarious position of Coptic Christians in Egypt, caught between the regime's failure to prevent violence against them, and their unwillingness to do anything about the causes of that violence.

Nearly six years after the 'January Revolution' of 2011, the country's economic, social and political divides are as sharp as ever, and the government is still unwilling or unable to address the causes of people's frustration.

Instead, the regime fans the flames of sectarianism, hoping security scares and nationalism will provide a legitimacy it sorely lacks.
