Living in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia covers the majority of the Arabian Peninsula, located to the north-east of Africa and connecting the continent to the Central Asia. It has a large coastline adjacent to the Red Sea and a smaller coastline adjacent to the Persian Gulf. Neighbouring countries include the Yemen, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq and Jordan. The capital is Riyadh, which is located centrally. Islam developed in the region in the 7th century. The oil reserves that are now synonymous with the state were first found in 1938; Saudi Arabia now produces more oil than any other country, and oil comprises about 80% of its exports. Saudi Arabia has a topography of desert primarily, and the climate reflects this. Given the country is the site of Islam’s emergence, it is no surprise that Saudi Arabia’s culture revolves significantly around it. However, this has brought with it criticism with regards to human right specifically, including complaints of gender inequality and homophobia as well as a legal system that does not always give the defendant a fair trial. Additionally, the country has religious police that ensure that Islamic laws and customs are adhered to. The homogeneity of Islam means that there is a noticeable lack of diversity regarding academic thought and expression, which translates into a lack of tolerance for those who may indulge in different cultures.
