Mariz Tadros voices her concerns regarding the increase in sectarian violence in Egypt, and explores how that development relates to post-Assad Syria. Sectarian violence has been a part of the region for a long time, she notes. Since the ousting of the Mubarak regime, however, she has observed in her quantitative and qualitative research an increase of new and more systematic forms of sectarian violence throughout the region.
