Details

Despite the catastrophic war on Yemen, the gruesome killing of Jamal Khashoggi, and the embargo on Qatar, why does the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia enjoy a special relationship with the U.S. administration? Does the rise of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman signal a new era?

Sharat G. Lin is a research fellow at the San José Peace and Justice Center. He writes and lectures on global political economy, labor migration, social movements, and the Middle East. He has lived in Saudi Arabia.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.

DIRECTIONS TO RENGSTORFF PARK AND THE CEDAR ROOM

Head south (away from the Bay) on Rengstorff Ave. (in Mountain View) from 101 or Central Expressway until you cross the train tracks. Then turn left at the intersection (with a traffic light) that says "Stanford Ave.-->" and
"<--Community Center". That puts you into the Community Center's parking lot. In the parking lot, veer to the right, and then turn left, and park alongside the right-hand side of the Community Center. Enter where you see the Humanist Community sign. The map of the location is shown below.
