Less than a month ago, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned after thousands of Egyptians protested in the streets for a more democratic and free government.

During those 18 days of protests, violent outbreaks occurred; in many cases demonstrators and journalists were attacked.

For a perspective of the situation on the ground, the Hertie School of Governance and Human Rights Watch organized a panel discussion with experts in the field.

The guests included Katrin Sandmann, a long-time Middle East correspondent in Jerusalem, Christoph Wilcke, senior researcher for the Middle East at Human Rights Watch, and Eldad Beck, the Berlin based Correspondent for the Israeli newspaper Yediot. The discussion was moderated by Wenzel Michalski.
