    Abstract

    On the 28 September 2013, the interim government of Mansur ‘Adli announced the banning of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). Apart from the fact that the ban deeply divides Egyptian society, we also need to consider the implications on the organisation. Of course, it is not possible to make predictions about the future. However, it is possible to examine the MB’s mobilising structures. By looking at shifts in these structures, we can say something about the MB’s political performance before President Mursi was removed from office and comment, albeit carefully, on whether the organisation will be able to reinvigorate its informal political networks in order to survive the new period of confinement. An assessment of the Brotherhood’s mobilisation capacity can give us an idea of the current state of its popular appeal.
