King Abdullah's Game: Autocrats and Globalized Interests
Krisanda, Sarah Jane

2013, BA, Kent State University, College of Arts and Sciences / Department of Political Science.
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is an autocrat facing increasingly globalized political dynamics. Instability in the Middle East calls into question the sustainability of his regime, but by balancing the interests and demands of both his domestic constituents and the international community, King Abdullah has maintained his country's stability. I propose a new model with which political scientists can understand how a leader reacts to transnational political demands. The model will go beyond current game theory analysis to account for the globalization of actors' interests. King Abdullah's Saudi Arabia illustrates a unique application of this model.
