1 thought on “Saudi Arabia: the outlook”

  1. This is an excellent article which I enjoyed reading. I am not personally sure MbS’s power is completely consolidated as yet, the next six months will tell I think. If it is, then I would expect him to become King during 2018. As for his internal ‘reforms’, slight and very overdue empowerment of women is one thing, but the real challenge will be how he will respond if he has created further expectations of change, including meaningful political change. That is where the real risks will lie perhaps?
