To mark the publication of Gulf States Newsletter (GSN)'s new report 'Politics, Succession and Risk in Saudi Arabia', publisher Cross-border Information Ltd and the Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House, are jointly holding a round-table seminar to discuss the issues raised by the report.

This extensively researched report provides rare insights into the structure and workings of the Saudi elite; analysis on Saudi policy; and features extensively researched biographical entries on 1,200 Al-Sauds from the ruling family's main branch, together with profiles of leading cadet branch businessmen, and a range of maps and graphics.

Topics to be covered in this seminar include: reform, succession, human rights, Saudi's regional relations, defence and security, energy policy and transparency.

The event will be jointly chaired by GSN Editorial Director and Associate Fellow, Jon Marks, and Chatham House Middle East and North Africa Programme Head Dr Claire Spencer, with the participation of speakers from GSN and other regional specialists.

This is a fee-paying research event. Participation costs £295 + VAT per person. The fee includes a full copy of the report, 'Politics, Succession and Risk in Saudi Arabia', for which the full retail price is £295 + VAT.
