Dr Simon Mabon from Lancaster University sets out the ways in which Saudi Arabia is using new anti-terrorism legislation to restrict freedom of speech and online activity. The briefing examines changing Saudi social attitudes to women's political participation, calls for greater accountability from the regime and the UK-Saudi economic and political relationship that has a chilling effect on London's willingness to speak out against Saudi human rights abuses.
