Talk with fellow of the British Academy Madawi Al-Rasheed about reform and repression in Saudi Arabia.

 

Sharing insights from the past that help us to make sense of the present.

In 2018, journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi regime operatives, shocking the international community, and tarnishing the reputation of Muhammad bin Salman, the kingdom’s young, reformist crown prince.

In this event, Fellow of the British Academy Madawi Al-Rasheed will discuss the contradictions behind the crown prince’s divisive reforms, place them within a wider historical context, and counter Orientalist arguments that despotism and authoritarianism are the only pathways to stable governance in the Middle East.

Speaker: Professor Madawi Al-Rasheed FBA, Visiting Professor, The Middle East Centre, London School of Economics

Chair: Farhana Haider, Journalist and Broadcaster, Presenter for the BBC World Service’s Witness History

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText
