Editorial

The recent developments at international level overwhelmed in uncertainties the forecasts of everybody, from ordinary people to major political figures or leading international institutions. Now, more than ever before, is a time when solutions for economic, social and political issues have to be interdisciplinary in approach, structure and implementation.

In this context, we are happy to continue the series of scholarly papers in our journal, presenting some aspects that have interdisciplinarity dimensions.

The Editorial team expresses its gratitude to contributors for their papers and to the reviewers for their efforts in evaluating the work of prestigious authors from Romania and abroad. The interesting ideas expressed in the present number of the European Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies are the results of preoccupations of academics, researchers and doctoral students who are approaching different topics from economics to political science.

We hope that despite the difficult times we are passing through our journal will pursue its promising start, offering interesting papers for its readers.

Women Entrepreneurship in Egypt: Is It Just as Challenging for All Women?
This paper aims to investigate the challenges facing highly educated Egyptian women, who abandon a high paid job in the private sector to start their own business. This study, based on a qualitative research, focuses on demonstrating that educated women, with a good paid job in the formal private sector, encounter the same challenges as the rest of women in starting, running, and maintaining their business. The study employs in-depth interviews with 10 women from Cairo, Egypt, highly educated, formerly employed in highly paid jobs in the private sector, that converted to entrepreneurship. Data have been analyzed using QDA Miner software. The results reveal the same difficulties women face in starting, running, and maintaining their business, regardless of their level of education, revealing that among major obstacles in women entrepreneurship, in Egypt, are the socio-cultural constrains that define the role of women in the society.
