Bridging the Gap! Young Voices from the Saudi Kingdom

Executive Summary

Between 2006 and 2008,  Edit Schlaffer, together with an international research team surveyed a total of 4,400 male and female students across the country, as it can be assumed that the educated generation will be the driving force for debate and change in the coming years. The students came from King Saud University in Riyadh, King Abdul Aziz University in Jeddah, Dar el Hekma University in Jeddah, Al Qassim University in Qassim, and King Faisal University in Dammam.

The results show an impressive common denominator: the female and male voices in the study desire to and feel confident about promoting women’s status in Saudi Arabia. Family is paramount, religion is treasured and tradition is respected.
