Egypt’s Biggest Literary Award to Poet and ‘Language Guardian’ Farouk Shousha — Arabic Literature (in English)

“In his role as secretary general, Shousha has been critical of what he considers to be a decline in the quality of Arabic in Egypt, a problem he attributes to radio and television announcers, poor teaching standards and the lack of libraries in schools. Shousha has described the problem as ‘an issue of national security.’”
