Discuss Saudi Arabia In Transition At New Smyrna Beach Library

By on July 14, 2017 in Community Stories

New Smyrna Beach, FL- As Saudi Arabia struggles to adjust to the drastic decline in oil
revenue, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman is attempting to
transform the country and shift more power to the younger generation. At
the same time, many countries such as the United States point out the
lack of democracy, women’s rights and human rights in Saudi Arabia,
and blame its promotion of Wahhabism, an extremely conservative version
of Islam, for creating jihadists.

Learn about Saudi Arabia in transition and share your opinions at 10
a.m. Friday, Aug. 4, at the New Smyrna Beach Regional Library, 1001 S.
Dixie Freeway. The group will watch a half-hour PBS documentary before
beginning their discussion.

Participants may borrow the Great Decisions 2017 Briefing Book from the
Information Desk to prepare for the discussion.

The forum is part of Great Decisions, America’s largest discussion
program on world affairs. The national program is sponsored by the
Foreign Policy Association.

Reservations are not required. For more information, call the library
at 386-424-2910, option 4.
