Saudi Arabia is in internal crisis: Wahhabist extremists have now begun to attack the regime that once funded them. In fact, over the past few months, terrorist attacks have occurred more frequently in Saudi Arabia than in Israel. Some analysts argue that the regime is now in the early stages of a civil war.
Can the Saudi state survive this unrest? Is reform possible? If not, what is the life expectancy of the Saudi regime? Moreover, how will the crisis in Saudi Arabia affect American and international oil markets? Is the U.S. prepared to meet this challenge?
To answer these questions, Hudson Institute's Center for Middle East Policy will hold a conference on Thursday, July 9. Two panel discussions will explore "How Stable Is the House of Saud?" and "An Impending Energy Crisis?" Matthew R. Simmons, chairman and CEO of Simmons & Company International, will deliver the keynote address on "The Implications of Saudi Arabian Oil Declining." Simmons and Company, one of the world's largest energy investment banking groups, has guided clients to complete over 500 investment banking projects at a combined dollar value of approximately $58 billion.
Special guests and panel participants include:
