Keywords: Egypt; Constitution; Islamization; Shari'a Law; Muslim Brotherhood.

This work focuses on the controversial constitutional charter that was in effect in Egypt from the rise to power of the Muslim Brotherhood to the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi. That constitution is analysed in comparison to the previous one drafted by the Sadat administration, with particular regard to the changing political and cultural context. In analysing a legal document like this one, it is necessary to highlight the challenge the Egyptian administration had to face all through its modern history: the challenge of adopting a Western legal framework to regulate a social context which is far from Western and Occidental.
