A Saudi Spring of Sand Storms: signs of domestic turbulence

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor Madawi Al- Rasheed

Recorded on 17 October 2011 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.

While neighbouring countries have seen unprecedented popular protests, Saudi Arabia has so far avoided a major show of discontent. But there are signs of domestic turbulence on the horizon.

Madawi Al-Rasheed is professor of social anthropology at the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at King's College London.
