The media experience of the Muslim Brotherhood (Arabic: Ikhwan al-muslimin)  goes back nearly seven decades and has included magazines, newsletters, radio broadcast, face-to-face proselytizing in mosques and cultural centers and finally online communication via websites and social media platforms. Since its foundation, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) has been involved almost continuously in conflicts of varying intensity with the country’s political authorities (ISS 2011) and the group’s communication strategy has evolved in close relation to the different relations it maintained with Egypt’s governing elites during different periods. Based on the existing research literature, this article provides a brief historical overview of central aspects of the MB’s communication strategy from its foundation in 1928 to the overthrow of the regime of Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
