Saudi Arabia and the West: the Future of a Toxic Relationship
London EC1M 6EL

With David Wearing. The war in Yemen and the Khashoggi murder have highlighted the ruthless and brutal nature of the Saudi regime and the extent to which it has been supported over many years by the west. The need for petrodollars and access to the sovereign wealth of Saudi Arabia to ease western current account deficits has led to western connivance with the Saudi regime in its regional objectives in the Middle East generally and specifically in the Yemen, where western arms and military advisors are used by the Saudi regime to fight a war that is resulting in a humanitarian disaster. David Wearing is a teaching fellow in International Relations at Royal Holloway, University of London, and has studied relations between the West and Saudi Arabia over many years. He has provided expert comment and analysis on numerous occasions for Sky News and BBC TV and radio, and has written widely in many journals and newspapers. In September 2017 he published 'AngloArabia: Why Gulf Wealth Matters to Britain' . He will look at the nature of the Saudi regime and its foreign policy under the Crown Prince and how far it will be possible for western policymakers to change, recalibrate and disentangle existing relationships which are so dependent on the flow of Saudi money to the west.
Nearest tube station Farringdon. 6.45pm (doors open 6.30).
