President al-Sisi’s authoritarian style of government has to some extent restored the rule of law in Egypt, but also implies a stricter compliance with the relatively restrictive legislation related to religious affairs. This is not to the advantage of the country’s Christian population. The persecution situation in Egypt is mainly influenced by the persecution engine Islamic Oppression. Islamic Oppression is slowly increasing its restrictions of religious expression in all spheres of life. In combination with a level of violence that is still very high, this indicates a volatile situation.
