DataSet The European Social Survey, ESS Round 5 - 2010
The European Social Survey (ESS) is an academically-driven multi-country survey, which has been administered in over 30 countries to date. It has three aims - First, to monitor and interpret changing public attitudes and values within Europe and to investigate how they interact with Europe's changing institutions; Second, to advance and consolidate improved methods of cross-national survey measurement in Europe and beyond; and third, to develop a series of European social indicators, including attitudinal indicators. This fifth round of the survey covers 28 countries, which includes Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.The questionnaire includes two main sections, each consisting of approximately 120 items; a 'core' module which remains relatively constant from round to round, plus two or more 'rotating' modules, repeated at intervals. The core module aims to monitor change and continuity in a wide range of social variables, including media use; social and public trust; political interest and participation; socio-political orientations; governance and efficacy; moral; political and social values; social exclusion, national, ethnic and religious allegiances; well-being; health and security; human values; demographics and socio-economics.

Research Article Local Governance and State-Citizen Interactions in Informal Areas
Realizing the magnitude of informality as a façon-de-vie in Cairo as in other megacities, this research focuses on the urban poor in their attempts to provide a decent standard of living using their own efforts, within the context of the lack of government engagement and limited resources. The study focuses on the research question of how community organizations and state actors interact in providing key infrastructure in informal areas, taking Izbit ElHaggana in Cairo as an area of study. The objective is to determine the processes of how community self-help schemes install and upgrade, operate, and maintain infrastructure in informal areas. This thus allows us to recognize sustainability issues, as well as potential for integrated/inclusive upgrading policies. As part of a masters’ thesis research, qualitative interviews were conducted with community members, government officials and experts on informality to provide holistic perceptions on the upgrading paradigm.

Research Article A Perception and Exposure Local Corruption Index (PELCI): Egyptian experience
The suggested Perception and Exposure Local Corruption index (PELCI), is a composite index of two indices (PLCI and ELCI) reflecting perception of and exposure to corruption. Each index addresses several aspects of corruption. These four aspects are the result of a qualitative expert opinion analysis based on a subjective analysis carried out by a number of sociologists and political scientists. The analysis can reflect a framework of corruption in Egyptian society but is not necessarily universal. Other societies can use different types and numbers of manifestations to produce their own index.
