Note: This is an archived project that covers the period of time between June 1, 2010 and June 8, 2014. No updates have been made to it since June 2014, when Abdel-Fattah El Sisi was elected president of Egypt. Please be aware that some source links in the timeline below might be broken or outdated, and please do not hesitate to contact TIMEP at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details on source citation.
In developing this timeline, the staff of TIMEP has striven to report events as accurately as possible. The fluidity of events, however, combined with sometimes conflicting reports, means that it is impossible to say that all details presented here are definitive. In addition, the catalog of notable events occurring each day is not intended to be seen as exhaustive. The reader should thus understand that the timeline gives an impression of the course of significant events within Egypt and is not itself meant to provide the last word on, for example, precise numbers of casualties or demonstrators involved in any particular event.
Work on the timeline began with cataloging the eight-week period from the lead-up to July 3, 2013 to the immediate aftermath of the clearing of the Raba’a al-Adaweya and Nahda Square protest camps on August 14. The TIMEP staff then began working back in time, going ultimately to the lead-up to January 25, 2011. Finally, in order to enhance the utility of the timeline for a largely non-Arabic-speaking audience, we have in many cases preferred English-language links for sourcing purposes.
