The murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the ensuing increase in diplomatic tensions between the United States and Saudi Arabia are subjects of the upcoming installment of the discussion series, “What’s Next?” The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University is hosting the discussion on Monday, Oct. 29, at 5:30 p.m., in the Memorial Student Center, Room 2404, on campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Bush School faculty taking part in the discussion, “The Death of Jamal Khashoggi: What’s Next for Saudi Arabia and US-Saudi Relations,” include Dr. F. Gregory Gause III, head of the Department of International Affairs and expert on the Arabian Peninsula and Persian Gulf, and Dr. Erin Snider, assistant professor and expert on the regional political economy of the Middle East. The panel will discuss the background of Khashoggi’s death, the political implications in Saudi Arabia and the future of US-Saudi relations.

President Trump’s response to the disappearance-turned-murder of Khashoggi in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey has raised deep concerns among the American diplomatic community. Saudi Arabia maintains Khashoggi was killed by “rogue agents,” but questions still swirl about his murder.
