This special edition analyzes the "migration issue" in Egypt and its current dynamics in the context of unprecedented mobility. The question is related to the ongoing regional conflicts that erupted after the popular movements of 2011. As a country located at the crossroads of migratory trajectories and marked by the rise of new routes, Egypt asserts its importance on the migration scene through a state policy that seeks to exploit this strategic position. Ambivalent actions towards refugees and asylum-seekers and growing support for a State-led legal emigration policy underscore the ambivalences of the Egyptian state regarding migrations. The commitment of collective and associative actors to both denouncing and filling in the gaps left by state’s inaction illustrates a multifaceted governance of mobility in Egypt.
