Muhammad Bin Salman- Costs of Breaking With Tradition 

Dr Dina Rezk, University of Reading

 

Recent arrests of prominent members of the royal family accused of plotting a coup are intended to demonstrate that dissent of Mohammed Bin Salman’s (MBS) authoritarian tendencies will not be tolerated; however, the lesson is really that Saudi rulers break with tradition at their own peril. Among those arrested was King Salman’s brother Prince Ahmed Bin Abdel Aziz and formerCrown Prince Muhammed bin Nayef (MBN). The latter was ignominiously dismissed in favour of MBS as prospective successor to the throne in June 2017, a move that alienated the Sudairi Seven, seven powerful sons of Ibn Saud, since MBN is a…(read more)

Two days prior to February’s parliamentary elections, Iran announced its first two cases of the COVID-19 virus. As the number of cases began to rise, it became clear the regime had covered up the outbreak to get the vote out. The effort failed. Turnout was the lowest since the 1979 revolution: about 42 per cent nationwide but only 25 per cent in Tehran. Elections in Iran are a barometer of public support and the historically low turnout in February underscores the regime’s loss of legitimacy among a majority of Iranians suffering under the weight of sanctions, economic mismanagement, and…(read more)

Iran: Expecting a Tumultuous 2020

Richard C. Baffa 

 

As the Islamic Republic celebrates the 41st anniversary of its founding, the regime is facing enormous pressure from a combination of factors, including: sanctions; a growing regime legitimacy crisis; anti-Iranian backlash in Iraq and Lebanon; and the killing of Qods Force Commander Qassim Suleimani, who was instrumental to advancing Iran’s regional strategy. Iran will continue to publicly tout its “resistance economy” but conditions will only worsen as the year progresses. New protests are almost certain to arise and probably with increasing frequency; they will be met by intimidation and violence, the response of a regime with no solutions and that appears to be losing its grip. For the near term, the regime will focus on regional diplomacy aimed at sowing division between the U.S. and its Gulf allies to eventually…(read more)

John Raine CMG OBE, Senior Advisor for Geopolitical Due Diligence at IISS

 

Iran is scheduled to hold elections to the 290-member Majlis, or Consultative Assembly, on 21 February 2020. Given recent public opposition to the regime, the elections could prove a trigger for further challenges to its authority and legitimacy. The electoral contest between reformists and conservatives may be less significant than the deeper question of the constitutional basis on which they serve. Whoever is elected, the Majlis will still be operating…(read more)

Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030- Progress and Problems 

Dr. Dina Rezk, University of Reading

At the beginning of a new decade, the Kingdom’s balance sheet in achieving the stated goals ofVision 2030 leaves much to be desired. This is in keeping with a historic trail of similar development plans to modernise and diversify the Kingdom since the 1970s: ultimately political considerations have trumped…(read more)

The Implications of the U.S.-Iran Dispute on Iraq 

Dr. Renad Mansour, Research Fellow at Chatham House

The U.S. assassination of Iranian General Qassim al-Suleimani and leader of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis initially threatened to engulf Iran and the U.S. in direct conflict, despite the U.S. President’s claims that “Iran appears to be standing down.” For Tehran, however, retaliation will not be limited to short-term tit-for-tat military attacks, but will include a longer-term campaign to increase Iranian…(read more)

Dorothea Gioe, former Near East Division officer at the Central Intelligence Agency

 

Haitham bin Tariq al-Said was not the obvious choice to succeed his recently-deceased cousin Qaboos as the Sultan of Oman. The new sultan’s half-brother, Asaad, served as Qaboos’ ‘special representative’ while he was ill, and his appointment as deputy Prime Minister in 2017 led to speculation that he would inherit the throne upon the Sultan’s death. Whether Haitham’s accession is derived from the fact that he is the son of his father’s first wife, or whether it was due to Sultan Qaboos’ final sealed…(read more)

The Islamic State’s (IS) Arabic language propaganda provides a useful lens into its strategic priorities and local recruitment narratives. Revealingly, the focus in this literature is overwhelmingly on the group’s local and regional Islamic enemies, rather than the West. Whilst taking advantage of any opportunity to claim victory, it is clear that the principal target in the Islamic State’s hierarchy remains Iran, in line with its longstanding...(read more)

Iraq’s New Prime Minister Will Not Be A Fix 

Dr. Renad Mansour, Research Fellow at Chatham House 

 

On 29 November 2019, after months of protests and related violence in which over 400 Iraqis have been killed, Iraqi prime minister Adil ‘Abd al-Mahdi resigned, one year after taking office. Yet, protesters are not satisfied with Mahdi’s resignation. Rather than calling for the end of one man, or one party, they have been calling for...(read more)

Saudi Arabia: Aramco’s Politicized Valuation 

Dr. Dina Rezk, University of Reading

 

Despite international investor scepticism, Saudi Arabia has managed to rally sufficient local and regional support to achieve Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman’s (MBS) long touted $2 trillion valuation for Aramco, after trading on the Tadawul stock exchange. The Kingdom undertook several public steps in recent months to secure a solid valuation for the nation’s crown jewel. Until September 2019, the head of Aramco was also Energy Minister. The decision to separate the two portfolios was an attempt to...(read more)

Dr. Dina Rezk, University of Reading

The appointment of the Kingdom’s first royal, Prince Abdul Aziz bin Salman as Energy Ministersignals a break with the tradition of protecting this key post from palace intrigue. Half-brother to Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman (MBS), and with a personal reputation as a technocrat and consensus builder, Prince Abdul Aziz has critical experience in negotiating deals within the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). As part of the quest to acquire as high a valuation for Aramco as possible, Prince Abdul Aziz has worked to secure deeper supply cuts within OPEC, particularly from…(read more)

Saudi Arabia: Implications of Aramco IPO

Dr. Dina Rezk, University of Reading

After considerable delays since Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman (MBS) first announced Aramco’s IPO as integral to the diversification strategy of Vision 2030, the decision to proceed on the Saudi Tadawul incorporates key political, economic and security considerations. This IPO is not only vital to the Kingdom’s long term economic goals, but MBS also needs the political success to shore up Saudi’s domestic and international reputation in the face of the Khashoggi murder last year, the resource-draining conflict in Yemen, and recent attacks on...(read more)

Iraqi Protests Unlikely to Yield Meaningful Changes

Dr. Renad Mansour, Research Fellow at Chatham House

 

October 2019 represented one of the largest grassroots protest mobilizations in Iraq since 2003, protests which continue into November and will likely linger in diminishing numbers. Iraqi youth (two-thirds of Iraq is under the age of 30 and many are without job prospects) are disillusioned by rampant, systemic corruption that privileges Shia, Kurdish, and Sunni elites. In response to protests, which began in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square on 01 October but have spread throughout the south, Iraqi forces and allied Iran-backed militia have used increasing force against largely unarmed protesters, resulting in the deaths of over 300… (read more)

Egypt: Protests and Political Upheaval

Marking the most significant unrest Egypt has witnessed since 2013, a wave of dissident videos followed allegations of corruption from military contractor Mohamed Ali.

Russian Economy Unprepared for EU Carbon Tax Shocks

Dr. Victor Madeira

 

Nearly 50 per cent of Russia’s state revenue is from fossil-fuel exports, but a European Union (EU) carbon border tax (CBT) proposal could stop a third of those by 2030. A CBT would aim to end competitive advantages enjoyed by exporters offering cheaper goods that do not include pollution-reduction costs. Since Russian finished exports have the world’s second-highest in- built CO2 emissions, any CBT stands to cause significant economic shocks in Russia.

Carbon, in every sense, is a growing security threat to Russia, with renewables now economically viable, de-carbonisation costs dropping, divestment increasing, and America set to overtake Russia and Saudi Arabia in oil exports by 2025. Producers with decaying extraction infrastructure, like Russia, face further problems because ‘re-gas’ tankers are allowing more countries to benefit from global liquid natural gas (LNG) markets. As a result,..(read more)

‘New’ U.S. Strategy in Central Asia Lacks Originality, Reality

Dr. Tracey German, King’s College London

 

In early February, the U.S. unveiled its five-year strategy for Central Asia, a brief document that is a continuation of its previous strategies focusing on political stability, counter-terrorism and energy security. Most key policy objectives—promoting reform of the rule of law and respect for human rights, reducing terrorist threats, and supporting the stabilisation of Afghanistan—have previously appeared over the past two decades. The declared aspiration to boost connectivity between Central Asia and Afghanistan along the Lapis Lazuli corridor reflects the New Silk Road initiative unveiled by Hillary Clinton in 2011. The biggest change is…(read more)

Unparalleled Bulgarian Backlash Re-Defining Russia Ties
Dr. Victor Madeira

 

Bulgaria’s Prosecutor General has charged three Russian military intelligence (GRU) officers with the attempted murder in 2015 of three Bulgarians, issuing international arrest warrants and extradition requests for the Unit 29155 officers. The original investigation stalled in 2016 but Bulgarian authorities re-opened the case in 2018, following British diplomatic lobbying and increased intelligence-sharing after the Salisbury novichok attack. The charges are part of a series of unprecedented measures against Russia that are straining historically close ties. While these actions may also serve to deflect attention from allegations of political corruption as Bulgaria seeks new energy suppliers and Euro area membership, they also…(read more)

Coronavirus Impacts CIS-China Relations

Dr. Tracey German, King’s College London, and Dr. Victor Madeira

 

China’s status as a vital economic partner for the majority of Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) members means the CIS are feeling pinched between the need to balance their bilateral relationships with Beijing with the requirement to protect their populations from the rapidly spreading Coronavirus. To date there have been no confirmed cases of the disease in Central Asia or the South Caucasus, and Russia reports only three cases. It is possible that authoritarian regimes across the region could be suppressing higher infection rates…(read more)

Russia Eyes Arctic Opportunities

Dr. Tracey German, King’s College London

 

While Norway marked the centenary of its rule of the Svalbard archipelago on 09 February 2020 with concerts and cake, Russia chose to mark the occasion by asserting that Russia has ‘long- term plans to strengthen, diversify and modernise its presence’ there. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov sent a letter to his Norwegian counterpart reiterating long-running concerns that Russian interests and activities are being discriminated against in Svalbard. The 1920 Svalbard Treaty, which established Norwegian sovereignty over the archipelago, also granted rights to all thesignatory states, including the right to settle and engage in economic activity. Russia is the sole signatory to have made use of this and Russian…(read more)

Russia, Iran Still Partners of Convenience Post-Suleimani

Dr. Victor Madeira

Despite talk of deepening strategic ties, Russia and Iran remain mistrustful partners of convenience often competing for influence—including in Syria, where together they prop up the al-Assad regime. In Russia’s global strategy of “divide-and-rule”, Iran and its proxies are valuable pawns against America and its regional allies. And an isolated Iran increasingly needs…(read more)

‘Apple Law’ Bans Won’t Help Russian Consumers, Businesses
Dr. Victor Madeira

 

Vladimir Putin has signed a bill banning the sale of electronic devices unless they have pre- installed (so far unspecified) Russian software. Expected to become law on 01 July 2020, this would benefit consumers and help local companies compete with foreign ones, say officials. But Apple—which does not pre-install third-party software—has joined Russian voices in criticising the step. It is the latest toward a Kremlin aim of ‘sovereign internet’, increasingly free of western technology…(read more)

No Russian Internet ‘Kill-Switch’ Anytime Soon 

Dr. Victor Madeira

 

The Russian Federation’s new ‘sovereign internet’ law came into effect on 01 November. Officials describe it simply as measures to centralise control of and isolate the Russian Internet (RuNet) in unspecified national emergencies, e.g. external cyber-attack, whilst allowing websites and services hosted in Russia to keep working. But the so-called ‘kill-switch law’ currently faces technical and financial obstacles to full implementation. This means the new legislation, at least in the near term, is more about… (read more)

Russia ‘Embarrassed’ Twice in a Week by CN Media  

Dr. Victor Madeira

In early November, Chinese media unusually embarrassed Russia – twice in a week. First, SINA reported that in July 2018, Syria seized an unexploded, cutting-edge Israeli-U.S. missile interceptor from the ‘David’s Sling’ system and gave it to Russia. Days later, Eastday.com quoted a leading Chinese strategist who claimed NATO could occupy Russia’s Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad (formerly Königsberg) in just two days, but Moscow would then widen the conflict by striking several European capitals. Russian media carried both reports, raising questions about their source, timing, and aims, though...(read more)

EVENTS 
‘Intelligence Assessment and increased public scrutiny’ with Eleanor Fairford

Hosted by King’s College London
Thursday 12th March 2020
KCL Strand, London, UK

 

The UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is at the cutting edge of making information gathered behind the scenes available for a public and industry audience with the real-world aim of making the UK the safest place to live and work online. NCSC Assessment is at the heart of that initiative, producing classified assessments of the cyber threat available for the broadest possible audience – including entirely within the public domain.

Eleanor Fairford will examine the ways that NCSC Assessment is breaking the mould of observing and monitoring threat information passively behind the scenes, and is instead breaking it out to the widest possible audiences. Not always a smooth ride, it will look at how this has evolved, the challenges we have faced and how it has felt along the way.

A generalist civil servant for the past 17 years, Eleanor has undertaken a range of policy and security roles, at home and overseas, in immigration, security policy and corporate services. She has been responsible for cyber assessment for the past three years where she leads a team of subject matter assessment experts covering the full range of cyber threats from all hostile adversaries, providing reports for strategic decision makers in government.

‘Women as Agents: A History of Female Intelligencers’ 

Hosted by RUSI
Wednesday 11th March 2020
Whitehall, London, UK

 

Stories about spies have long captured the public’s imagination, often represented in popular culture with a mixture of bravery, mystery and intrigue. Traditionally, these stories are predominantly male, a few famous historical figures notwithstanding. It is only very recently that the agency of women is becoming increasingly central to narratives, as female writers and historians turn to the subject. For International Women’s Day 2020, join us to discuss female intelligencers from the 17th century to the Second World War. Our speakers are:

Sonia Purnell, Journalist/author
Nadine Akkerman, University of Leiden
Claire Hubbard-Hall, Bishop Grosseteste University

‘Spying for Queen and Country’ with Stephen Alford and Sir Richard Dearlove

Hosted by Gresham College
Thursday 26th March 2020
The Old Library, Guildhall, London, UK

Spying for Queen Elizabeth I was very different from modern-day intelligence services – or was it? This lecture brings together historian Stephen Alford and Sir Richard Dearlove, former head of MI6, and will discuss Tudor spies and the modern-day secret service. It celebrates 500 years since the birth of William Cecil, 1st Baron Burghley, an intelligence-gatherer for Elizabeth I across Europe, who also brought his son, Sir Robert Cecil, into the world of secret Elizabethan intelligence. The lecture will also look at the use of secret communications like codes and cipher. Please note the entrance to the Old Library will be on Basinghall Street.

Thursday 2nd April 2020
Fairhope, Alabama, USA

In 1942, the Gestapo sent out an urgent transmission: “She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her”. The target in their sights was Virginia Hall, a Baltimore socialite who talked her way into Special Operations Executive. She became the first Allied woman deployed behind enemy lines and–despite her prosthetic leg–helped to light the flame of the French Resistance, revolutionizing secret warfare as we know it.

Based on new and extensive research, Sonia Purnell has for the first time uncovered the full secret life of Virginia Hall–an astounding and inspiring story of heroism, spycraft, resistance, and personal triumph over shocking adversity

 ‘The Hunt for and Identification of a CIA Traitor’ with Sandy Grimes

Hosted by the Institute of World Politics
Friday 3rd April 2020
16th Street Northwest, Washington DC, USA

In 1985 and 1986 CIA experienced the unparalleled loss of its stable of Soviet assets, which all but wiped out human source reporting on the Soviet Union. Ms. Grimes will detail her and her co-spy catcher’s personal involvement in CIA’s effort to identify the reason for those losses and to protect future Soviet assets from a similar fate of execution. In 1991 the quest led them to search for a Soviet spy in CIA and to the identification of that individual as CIA case officer Aldrich Ames, a long-time friend and co-worker. In February 1994, Ames was arrested by the FBI and sentenced to life in prison.

Sandy Grimes is a twenty-six year veteran of CIA’s Clandestine Service, who spent most of her career working against the former Soviet Union supporting many of CIA’s most valuable cases, penetrations of the KGB and GRU. She is co-author of the book “Circle of Treason” which details the search for a Soviet traitor in CIA.

‘Lockheed’s Corona – America’s First Spy Satellite Program’

Hosted by the IEEE Silicon Valley Technology History Committee
Thursday 9th April 2020
Keypoint Credit Union, Santa Clara, USA

Corona was America’s first eye-in-the-sky space mission replacing the U-2 flights ended by the shooting down of a flight in 1960.  Lockheed Missiles and Space Systems (Lockheed) here in Silicon Valley was the system integrator of the Corona payload which included new camera, film and recovery capsule as well as the developer of never flown Agena which served as the upper stage to the Thor booster and spacecraft.  It was breakthrough technology in all aspects.

The Corona program depended on the development of a new spacecraft, Agena, designed and built by Lockheed. Agena subsequently went on to support multiple other missions for many other customers, and essentially became America’s first space utility vehicle, with 362 launches over three decades. Lockheed veterans will discuss the original CORONA mission and the key challenges Agena had to meet for long-term success.
