This chapter tracks the role of Brotherhood affiliates after the so-called Arab Spring, with the aim of understanding how they function in the present day and how they were affected by the developments of 2011–2012, as well as the fall of the Muhammad Mursi government in Egypt. It shows the resilience and flexibility of rentier Islamists, in particular as political conditions have changed. As the regimes of the super-rentiers have limited the institutional involvement of the Brotherhood, either through co-optation or crackdown, the Brotherhood remained an influential cultural force for its appeal within conservative societies whose governments were becoming increasingly modern and Western-leaning.
