Who was Jamal Khashoggi?

Jamal Khashoggi was one of the most experienced and accomplished journalists of his generation. His professional interest extended far beyond that of his native Saudi Arabia, from Sudan and Algeria to Afghanistan and Palestine.

On a personal level he was humble and passionate. He was affable and a pleasure to work with. Middle East Monitor is proud to have hosted Jamal Khashoggi at our event in London just one month before his death.

Jamal’s deep and passionate love for his country and the people of the region was exemplified through his writing. Freedom of expression, integrity in public office, good governance, accountability and transparency were all issues close to his heart. He had a desire to see the region’s wealth fairly distributed and equal opportunity for all its peoples.

Jamal Khashoggi may have been silenced physically but his memory and his thoughts will have a lasting and enlightened impact on young people in the region and journalists across the world.
