1. Carminati, Lucia. Būr Saʿīd/Port Said, 1859-1900: Migration, Urbanization, and Empire in an Egyptian and Mediterranean Port-City .

Degree: 2018, University of Arizona

Between the 1850s and the early 1900s, an increasing number of migrants landed on Egypt’s shores. Egypt provided an alternative to stagnant economies, offered political stability, and even granted a system of separate judicial courts for foreigners. Within Egypt itself, more and more people moved from villages to cities, such as the rapidly growing Cairo and Alexandria and the brand-new towns of Port Said and Ismailia, arising from scratch along the works for the Suez Canal. My work builds on the existing historiography on migration and urbanization in the Middle East. Scholars have accounted for migrant communities in their histories of cities in the Maghreb, the Ottoman empire, and in Egypt, paying particular attention to Alexandria and Cairo. The cities founded along the Suez Canal upon the inception of its digging in 1859 have garnered some scholarly attention, but no historical inquiry yet exists of the role of mobile individuals in their history and in Egyptian history writ large. This dissertation traces the social and cultural history of Port Said between 1859, when it was founded as the Suez Canal’s northern harbor, and the onset of the twentieth century. It focuses on the role of migrants in influencing the formation of the Egyptian state. My documentary corpus is comprised of letters, petitions, consular court records, police files, the records of religious institutions, maps, and newspapers from thirty-five archives in Egypt, Malta, Italy, Great Britain, and France. The dissertation explores the every-day life of Port Said’s residents at a time of heightened migratory influx into the city. It demonstrates that the heterogeneous workforce who started moving to the isthmus of Suez in the 1850s opened up that area to commercial exploitation and political control. It also shows that, through their mundane, often contentious, encounters with local, consular, colonial, and Egyptian state authorities, the Egyptian and foreign newcomers who peopled the emerging town shaped norms and laws governing the use of the urban space, security, public hygiene, and morality. I conclude that law-making in modern Egypt was not merely the creation of bureaucrats in Cairo but also the work of transient individuals in an utterly new provincial port-city, one called into being by forces at once local and global. My research thus contributes to the histories of Egypt, of mobility in the Middle East, and of the relationship between capitals and ostensibly “peripheral” cities in times of urban transformations.

2. Hilmy, Hanny. Sovereignty, Peacekeeping, and the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF), Suez 1956-1967: Insiders’ Perspectives.

Degree: Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, 2015, University of Victoria

This research is concerned with the complex and contested relationship between the sovereign prerogatives of states and the international imperative of defusing world conflicts. Due to its historical setting following World War Two, the national vs. international staking of claims was framed within the escalating imperial-nationalist confrontation and the impending “end of empire”, both of which were significantly influenced by the role Israel played in this saga. The research looks at the issue of “decolonization” and the anti-colonial struggle waged under the leadership of Egypt’s President Nasser. The Suez War is analyzed as the historical event that signaled the beginning of the final chapter in the domination of the European empires in the Middle East (sub-Saharan decolonization followed beginning in the early 1960s), and the emergence of the United States as the new major Western power in the Middle East. The Suez experience highlighted a stubborn contest between the defenders of the concept of “sovereign consent” and the advocates of “International intervention”. Both the deployment of the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) and its termination were surrounded by controversy and legal-political wrangling. The role of UNEF and UN peacekeeping operations in general framed the development of a new concept for an emerging international human rights law and crisis management. The UNEF experience, moreover, brought into sharp relief the need for a conflict resolution component for any peace operation. International conflict management, and human rights protection are both subject to an increasing interventionist international legal regime. Consequently, the traditional concept of “sovereignty” is facing increasing challenge. By its very nature, the subject matter of this multi-dimensional research involves historical, political and international legal aspects shaping the research’s content and conclusions. The research utilizes the experience and contributions of several key participants in this pioneering peacekeeping experience. In the last chapter, recommendations are made –based on all the elements covered in the research- to suggest contributions to the evolving UN ground rules for international crisis intervention and management. Advisors/Committee Members: Blue, Gregory (supervisor), Schmidtke, Oliver (supervisor).
