Great Decisions to Discuss Saudi Arabia in Transition

Join Great Decisions for a discussion of “Saudi Arabia in Transition”

As Saudi Arabia struggles to adjust to the drastic decline in oil revenue, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman attempts to boldly transform the country and shift more power to the younger generation. At the same time, many countries such as the U.S. point out the lack of democracy, women’s rights and human rights in Saudi Arabia, and blame its promotion of Wahhabism, an extremely conservative version of Islam, for creating jihadists. Bipartisan criticism of Saudi Arabia is rising in Congress. Both countries need each other, but they are at a crossroads in bilateral relations.
Join in the discussion and learning with our International Relations team on Monday, March 6 from 11:30 to 1:30 (brown-bag lunch) at Plymouth Congregational Church (916 W Prospect Rd, Fort Collins).  Guests are welcome
