This special issue of Égypte/Monde arabe is a tribute to Alain Roussillon, who passed away prematurely in 2007 at age fifty-five, when he was the director of the CEDEJ. This issue was set in motion in 2017, on the ten-year anniversary of his death. It is an homage from his colleagues, many of whom he helped find a voice in the social sciences research sphere on Egypt and the Arab world. The collection also includes contributions from younger authors who were inspired by his work. To complement this tribute, the editions of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) has re-released some of his articles under the supervision of Hamit Bozarslan and Laure Guirguis. The edition reflects on his intellectual legacy and carefully considers the longevity of his concepts. From his work on inter-Arab migrations to the reconfiguration of the Arab diaspora in Latin America, it is timely to re-examine these readings and their relevance in the context of current Egypt.
