A generation in the making: The formation of young Muslim volunteers in Cairo

The PhD thesis describes and analyzes the practices and experiences of a group of young middleclass Egyptians in a youth-based Muslim charity organization before, throughout and immediately after the 2011 Egyptian uprising. The overall argument is that religious commitment in the form of providing for the poor can in fact strengthen ideals and practices of civic responsibility and political engagement among young middle-class Egyptians. Recommendations are made concerning potentials and challenges in terms of possible partnerships with such faith-based youth organizations in Egypt.
