Les médias, les élites et l’armée en Egypte du début des années 2000 à aujourd’hui : Le rôle des chaînes satellitaires et d’internet, entre période révolutionnaire et mutation néo-autoritaire

Abstract : The evolution of the media industry in Egypt since the early 2000s has had a critical impact on the political path taken by the country in the aftermath of the 2011 uprising. This research aims at demonstrating that in Egypt, the complex overlapping of political and economic interests between the media, the business elites and the army has been key to the regime’s ability to survive the revolution, and that such intricacy has played a crucial role in the successful mutation of the Egyptian political system towards neo-authoritarianism. The collusion between the army and the private broadcast sector that emerged in the early 2000s, has allowed the regime to regulate the country’s transition to satellite technologies, to control the liberalization of this new public sphere, and to tame the messages of moderate dissidents by giving them access to mass media. The arrival of internet in Egypt during that same decade has helped the rise of a parallel public sphere and its fast politicization, which led to the development of a more radical opposition eager to use new technologies as mobilization tools to trigger a regime change. Despite the undeniable impact of the 2011 revolution on freedom of expression in Egypt, the country’s media industry has appeared unable to emancipate itself from the authoritarian dynamics it has been submitted to for decades. And even though media seemed to be advocating for more democracy in the aftermath of the uprising, they quickly slipped back into their initial role of custodians of the regime’s survival.
