As the Middle East occupies the world’s theatre front stage with the Arab Spring performing in several countries and spreading to others, the need to reform towards a more democratic society is more acute than ever before. The fast growing unemployed young population in the region is demanding changes that were unthinkable of five years ago. Although Saudi Arabia has remained largely untouched by the Arab Spring it has not been completely isolated from it and King Abdullah, a reformist by nature, is well aware of a problem that if not addressed properly could destabilize the country that holds over 20 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves and the only one capable to stabilize global oil prices. This is why against the backdrop of the Arab uprisings and amid concerns over Europe’s sovereign-debt crisis King Abdullah announced a $130 billion spending plan in the first quarter of 2011 to expedite measures to address socioeconomic challenges such as unemployment or housing and prevent the spread of discontent in KSA. In a country of 27 million people where over 60 percent are under the age of 30 the problem is intense.
