New Directions in Saudi Arabia & the Middle East

Exchange of views on “New Directions in Saudi Arabia & the Middle East”with Mr. Abdulrahman al-Rashed on 10 October at 17:00 – 18:30 in room ASP A1H1 at the European Parliament in Brussels.

Veteran Saudi media figure Abdulrahman al-Rashed is one of the best informed voices on his native land and a trusted voice throughout the region. In a dynamic discussion with the audience, al-Rashed will explore Saudi reformists’ struggle to revamp the economy, counter extremism, and overcome sectarian animosities within their borders and beyond. Amid Iranian expansionism, trans-state militias, and new hopes for the Arab-Israeli peace, this timely event will add richness and nuance to debates on EU and Middle East foreign policy. 

Organised by: MEP Anders Vistisen (ECR), First Vice-Chair AFET Committee
