This evening at 6pm, Casa Árabe presents online on its YouTube channel the book The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Hegemony of the Middle East, by David Hernández Martínez, researcher at TEIM. Event in Spanish.
Saudi Arabia is one of the main political, religious and economic centres of the Middle East. Since 1932, the country has been under the control of the Casa de Saúd, which is trying to transfer its image of leadership to the whole region. However, the profound transformations that have been taking place in the area since the Arab Spring of 2011 constitute notable impediments to the full development of Saudi Arabia’s international policy. King Salman and Prince Mohammed bin Salman are introducing major changes in the kingdom’s internal and external environment, focused on consolidating their hegemonic position vis-à-vis Iran and other surrounding powers. Analysing the historical development of the Wahhabi state is useful for better understanding the major events that have marked the evolution of the Arab and Muslim world in recent decades. The Saudi Arabian crown has to cope with a complex domestic and regional landscape in which each of the actions it undertakes will largely determine the survival of the regime and the strength of the kingdom on the world stage.
