In June, it was reported that a new organisation entitled the ‘Egyptian Association for Defending the Rights of Men and Children in Egyptian Family Law’ was officially established. The association ‘aims primarily at safeguarding the entity of the Egyptian family and resisting the steady rise of divorce cases in the country’ (quoted from Al-Monitor). It was set up following the decision by the Minister of Justice to establish a committee to review and rework Egypt’s Family Law.
