"[This book] provides...an assessment of the Saudi economy and the development of its capital market. A thriving capital market, one that not only brings investment funds into a country but also distributes profits in a transparent matter, is essential for any economy, especially a rapidly developing one such as Saudi Arabia. Already a key player on the world stage, the Kingdom is going through major planned economic transformation and diversification. In particular, a robust and transparent capital market, with a high level of integrity and sound enforcement, is well on the way to fruition. This book is the first in English to analyze and evaluate the roles of economic planning and a capital market in Saudi Arabia's economic modernization. In the process of examining the level of transparency and fairness in Saudi Arabia's capital market, the author provides detailed information and analysis of such issues and topics as the following: market disclosure rules; insider trading laws; gaps in enforcement; dispute resolution; role of securities agencies; Saudi Arabia's position in international organizations; and repercussions of the 2006 Saudi stock market collapse."-- Provided by publisher.

  • Introdution
  • Reforms within the judiciary
  • National and international dialogues
  • Political participation and municipal elections
  • Political reforms and the succession dilemma
  • Reforms and the petition industry
  • Sa'udi Arabia and the United States
  • Conclusion.
The fractious relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia has long been a central concern in Washington. In the aftermath of 9/11 and amongst ongoing wars, the United States confronts an acute dilemma: how to cooperate with Riyadh against terrorism whilst confronting acute anti-Americanism? Using information gathered from extensive interviews with a plethora of officials, this book aims to analyze Saudi domestic reforms. It addresses the significant deficiency of information on such diverse matters as the judiciary and ongoing national dialogues, but also provides an alternative understanding of what motivates Saudi policy makers. How these reforms may impact on future Saudi decision-making will surely generate a slew of policy concerns for the United States and this study offers a few clarifications and solutions. This book will be of interest to anyone seeking a new perspective on the motivation behind legal and political reforms in Saudi Arabia, and the effects of these reforms beyond the Middle East.

  • Acknowledgments.
"Most Saudis and some foreigners agree that King Abdullah has loosened the social reins restricting Saudi society since he assumed power in August 2005. Today, Saudi women are less subject to rigid sex discrimination in public places, education has expanded, citizens have greater latitude to criticize their government, and judicial reform promises more reliance on written law, and less on individual religious interpretation. Once taboo subjects, such as domestic violence, are now discussed in public. However, many of these changes--including improvements in the judicial system, fostering religious tolerance, and improving the lot of women--are superficial, limited in scope, and lack legal or governmental support. The government, for example, continues to punish citizens who criticize its policies or the royal family; Shia still face official discrimination; women are still tethered to male guardians for basic life decisions; and activists risk arrest if they use the internet to publicize abuses. Other areas have seen virtually no reforms at all. This includes, in particular, the position of migrant workers who work under a restrictive sponsorship system and lack adequate labor protections. As a result, it is unclear if the changes seen during Abdullah's five years in power will endure, and whether his legacy will ultimately prove to be one of lasting institutional reform, or merely a brief respite in the kingdom's recent history of social, political and religious oppression."--P. [4] of cover.
