In the wake of the alleged state-sponsored disappearance and killing of Saudi journalist and Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi, the latest in a series of troubling events from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, this event will provide an important dialogue around Mr. Khashoggi, the broader crackdown on dissent under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and U.S. policy recommendations to address these new challenges. Khashoggi’s case has powerful implications for the freedom of the press and human rights more broadly.
