  "abstract": "This article is a study on dignity and the politics of dignity in postcolonial Egypt, and focuses\non the historicity and socioeconomic background of two events: the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis\nduring the rise of post-independence nationalism and the 2011 Egyptian Revolution during the\nArab Spring. This study reviews the importance of the concept of dignity in philosophy and the\nsocial sciences, specifically pertaining to the development and postcolonial need for dignity and\nrecognition, which the author terms 'dignition.' The central question here is how the conception\nof dignity has evolved between the two events and what the implications are for the consequent\nunderstanding of dignity.",
