Description

The Society’s Annual Dinner, together with presentation of the Rawabi Holding Awards, will be held on 24th January 2018 at the Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall, London SW1. The awards are generously donated by Mr. Abdulaziz al Turki and are made annually to one Saudi and one British citizen for their contribution to promoting Saudi-British relations.

The winners of the 2018 Rawabi awards, are:

Dr Abdul Aziz al Sager, chairman and founder director of the Gulf Research Centre and founder and co-organiser of the annual Gulf Research Meeting at Cambridge University, which for the past ten years has brought together academics, writers and researchers interested in the Gulf to exchange ideas and deepen understanding of developments there. Dr Sager has written many influential papers and articles on Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. He has degrees from Kent and Lancaster Universities.

Dr Farhan Nizami CBE, Fellow of Magdalen College Oxford and Founder Director of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, an independent centre of Oxford University. OCIS was established, thanks to King Fahd's generosity, in 1985 to bring together scholars from the West and the Islamic world and increase mutual understanding. Dr Nizami has successfully guided the Centre ever since. Thirty years of endeavour were crowned this year with the opening by the Prince of Wales, supported by the Centre's present chair Prince Turki al Faisal, of its beautiful building, an extraordinary blend of Oxford college and medieval madrassa.

The event will start at 6.30pm with a drinks reception. The winners of the awards will make short presentations and then a buffet dinner will be served. Guests may be invited.
