This report which has been written by Saad Eddin Ibrahim, Director of the Ibn Khaldoun Center for Development Studies in Cairo, carefully examines the historical role played by the Copts and the tensions to which they are vulnerable. The report aims to promote constructive responses. The recommendations reflect this approach and stress the importance of freedom of worship; equal access to employment opportunities; an education which recognizes the Coptic contribution to Egyptian history; the importance of preventing stereotypical and defamatory remarks about Copts in the Egyptian media, and the need to end discrimination against women.
