Understanding poverty in Saudi Arabia
Poverty in Saudi Arabia is a much-overlooked topic in the international academic community. Despite the oil wealth of Saudi Arabia, many Saudi nationals are thought to live in poverty. This research project will analyse the reasons why some Saudis are left out from the oil wealth and live in poverty. The research will be mixed methods, conducting qualitative interviews with charity workers and Saudi households living in poverty as well as a quantitative household survey.
