Webinar – Visions or Mirage: Saudia Arabia at the Crossroads
You are invited to a Webinar Conversation with David Rundell of Arabia Analytica. Mr. Rundell, the author of the forthcoming book “Visions or Mirage: Saudia Arabia at the Crossroads” will be exploring the stability of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the radical changes it is experiencing today that may threaten that stability and will suggest that the West may be best served to support change in the Kingdom because it is in our best interest to do so. At the end of his presentation, Mr. Rundell will open the floor for questions.
David H. Rundell served as an American diplomat for thirty years in Washington, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates. Over those three decades he spent fifteen years in the kingdom working at the Embassy in Riyadh as well as the Consulates in Jeddah and Dhahran. His assignments in Saudi Arabia included the Chief of Mission, Charge d’Affaires, Deputy Chief of Mission, Political Counselor, Economic Counselor, Commercial Counselor, and Commercial Attaché.
