Abstract:

"Civil society and human rights activists in Saudi Arabia are struggling for greater popular political participation, judicial reform, and an end to discrimination against women and minorities. Saudi authorities have responded by arresting rights defenders and attempting to intimidate, those calling for change. [This report] presents the stories of 11 prominent Saudi civil society and human rights activists, and their struggles to resist government efforts to silence them. ... Authorities have attempted to stem the growth of independent activism through a sweeping repression campaign, which has included threats, intimidation, investigations, prosecutions, detentions, and long prison terms."--Back cover.
