Education has played a critical role in the development of modern Egypt. Indeed, it has become a microcosm of Egyptian society, politics and culture--a stage in which Egypt has struggled to preserve and sustain its cultural integrity. Both external and internal forces continue to hamper the efficacy of Egypt’s educational system by producing inconsistent and incompatible cognitions. Using Cognitive Dissonance Theory, this thesis is designed to analyze these forces through multiple modes of enquiry. Using historical, ethnographic and textual evidence, this thesis examines the social dissonance caused by different social groups as they define the appropriate role of Islam in public institutions such as the university. Egypt’s educational dissonance can be traced to its long history of foreign intervention and a political leadership whose educational policies often run counter to the sentiment of the populace.

This is book is based on my master thesis in Sustainability Science and Environmental Studies at Lund University in 2011. It discusses the challenges the decision-makers in Lithuania had in the early 2000’s whether to shut down Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant or keep it operating. The analysis of this topic is based on holistic approach including socio-economic, environmental and political aspects. Since many nuclear power plants are ageing and many countries around the world claims they want to shut down their nuclear power plants, this thesis gives some insights about some challenges the policy-makers should expect to handle. This thesis is useful for decision-makers, NGOs, nuclear industry professionals, and also for radiation protection and nuclear safety professionals.
