Abstract (Swedish)
This thesis studies the connection between authoritarianism and legitimacy by applying it to Egypt. The author argues that the authoritarian regime in the country have maintained its power by using a consistent strategy involving cooptation of some groups and a selective repression of groups that threatens its position. In this way, it has been able to obtain legitimacy from key groups and suppress the groups that threaten its position. This study uses three variables in order to show the connection between legitimacy and the authoritarian resilience. This paper challenges the perception that an authoritarian regime lacks legitimacy and bases its rule exclusively on oppressing its population.
