There have been reform movements and various attempts at reform in Saudi Arabia since the early 1990s. This study attempts to put forward and discuss the hypothesis that may be summarized as the impact of political reform measures on the kingdom in achieving harmony between the state and society to guarantee stability and security in the present and for future generations. The study analyzes proposals for political reform in the country and the scope of the government's response to these during the past years. This is especially relevant in view of the Arab movement for change in the Gulf region and the Arab world in general, and the repercussions of global terrorism in Syria and Iraq and its intensification that is threatening the borders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, including Saudi Arabia.
