The Middle East Institute (MEI) is pleased to invite you to a screening of PBS Frontline’s 2019 documentary, “The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia,” followed by a panel discussion with Frontline correspondent Martin Smith. In this documentary, Smith interviews experts and individuals close to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman to examine his approach to leadership and dissent since his appointment in June 2017.
A year on from the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and amidst signs that the Yemen conflict may be winding down, the discussion will explore the current political landscape in Saudi Arabia, updating the documentary’s perspective on opportunities and challenges, and addressing related questions of leadership, economics, and foreign policy within the Kingdom. Smith will be joined by Yasmine Farouk and moderator Amb. Gerald Feierstein to examine these critical questions facing Saudi Arabia’s future and its implications for the region and for the world.
