DEFENDING FREEDOM OF RELIGION IN CONFLICT-TORN COUNTRIES: A BRIEF ANALYSIS OF AMERICAN STRATEGIES IN CONTEMPORARY EGYPT (1998-2013)

Abstract : When President Clinton signed into law the International Religious Freedom Act in 1998, he provided the members of the religious right with a unique opportunity to promote their vision of the world through the publication of annual reports assessing religious freedom worldwide. This paper presents a critical analysis of the Commission " s reports (1998-2013) on sectarian strife in Egypt and discusses the ideological implications of the discourse adopted by the commissioners. In a second step, this discourse will be confronted to the arguments put forward by members of minority groups who oppose any legislation establishing the US as the religious police of the world.
