The program of the Arab human rights activists and civil society organizations had a prominent role in the ongoing struggle to admit more equitable and democratic law for civil work in Egypt, which led to the overthrow of law 32 of 1964 and the enactment of Law 153 of 1999, and now the current Law No. 84 of 2002 and over nine years the Arab Program worked on this law from Aswan to Cairo via seminars, conferences, studies and researches in order to achieve agreement and to change public opinion against the trends of this law and work to repeal or modify it in the post-revolution phase which is a very difficult transitional stage. Arab Program for Human Rights Activists aimed to establish a series of campaigns to build a new culture of civil work in Egypt in cooperation with the International Centre for the laws of civil society organizations
