Leading our special coverage inside Egypt's crackdown on dissent, free speech and the right to assembly is a series of articles by Jo Schietti, who examines the jailing of political opposition, a fierce campaign against student activism and the suppression of civil society groups.

Update: This page now also features some of our reports from the build-up to the presidential election, which President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is widely expected to win, having arrested or otherwise dissuaded all meaningful opposition from standing against him.
