Egyptian foreign policy under Hosni Mubarak has been characterized by stability, moderation, and predictability. With the exception of participation in the international coalition for the liberation of Kuwait in 1991, Egypt has not engaged in armed conflict during his quarter century-long rule, the longest nonwar period in Egypt's modern history. Mubarak succeeded in protecting Egypt from the waves of instability prevailing in the region. The price has been, according to critics, a retreat from Egypt's regional leadership role. The regional role of Egypt, its requirements, and its costs are once again the focus of discussion and contestation in the first decade of the twenty-first century.
