Another Milestone: Princess Haifa Represents Saudi Arabia In Unesco


Saudi Princess Haifa bint Abdul Aziz Al Mogrin was appointed as the kingdom’s permanent representative to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), which designates and protects archaeological and heritage sites.



Saudi Arabia became a member of the organisation’s executive council in November 2019. Her appointment is a major stride for the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision, which pushes for empowerment of Saudi women in leadership roles.

“The kingdom will seek to enhance its cooperation with all members of the council as well as preserving Arab culture and heritage and promoting social development and tolerance,” Saudi minister of culture, Prince Badr bin Abdullah said in a statement, according to Al Bawaba.



The Saudi royal received her bachelor’s degree in economics from King Saud University in Riyadh and climbed up the academic ladder with a master’s degree in Economics with a focus on the Middle East from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London.

Princess Haifa came back to King Saud University where she excelled as a lecturer in her field. Her impressive resume includes several governmental positions alongside being an assistant to the deputy minister for sustainable development and G20 affairs.
