About this event
The Murder of Jamal Khashoggi
The Growing Threat of Transnational Repression
Join Michael Isikoff, Lina Alhathloul, and Nate Schenkkan, in a conversation moderated by journalist Kim Ghattas.
The panelists will discuss an eight-part series that will have just concluded on Conspiracyland. Entitled “The Secret Lives and Brutal Death of Jamal Khashoggi,” the series investigates the grisly state-sponsored assassination of Saudi Arabia’s most prominent journalist after he dared to criticize the country’s powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, or MBS.
They’ll discuss the Khashoggi murder as an example of the growing threat of “transnational repression,” when repressive governments reach across borders, often into democracies, to silence dissent from citizens and journalists who have fled the country. Register now.
