As the world seeks to take measure of the seismic change taking place in Egypt, and as the question about what kind of political settlement will follow the demise of President Hosni Mubarak emerges, BBC Radio 4's Sunday Programme on 13 February 2011 will examine the issues with a panel of experts - including regular Ekklesia contributor Dr Harry Hagopian.
Dr Hagopian, who is an international lawyer, ecumenical advisor and political consultant, will appear alongside the Egyptian writer Tarek Osman, and Carol Gould, American broadcaster and author.
The issues covered are also likely to touch on the situation of hard-pressed indigenous Coptic Christians in Egypt, and the question as to what role religion will play in the country's future development.
The programme is broadcast from 7.10am on Sunday, but will be available on the BBC's 'Listen Again' online resource base for a week after broadcast (until midnight on Saturday 18 February).
