Learning from Human Rights Defenders
Ameen Nemer is a human rights defender and researcher from Saudi Arabia who is currently living in exile in the UK. He will join us to talk about contemporary human rights in his home country. Nemer will discuss why topics including women’s rights and Shia minority rights are political rather than religious in Saudi Arabia, and analyse the nature of the Crown Prince’s policy reforms. Nemer poses the question: Will international pressure push for a positive change inside Saudi Arabia after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul on 2 October 2018?
