The Gulf region, rich in history, culture, and resources, is one of the fastest changing and most important economic and political regions and yet least-understood region. The region has not only experienced unprecedented changes in the social, economic and political landscapes in the last several decades but also become instrumental to changes in neighbouring regions that share significant flows of goods, capital and labour with the Gulf states. The forces and means that have brought about changes to the six member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are complex and merit rigorous scientific inquiry.
This series is dedicated to serving growing academic interests in the dynamic, complex and strategically important six member states of the GCC: Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, the UAE, and Bahrain, offering a scholarly publication platform to the scholars in the region and globally. The Gulf Studies series takes an interdisciplinary approach to documenting the changes taking place in the Gulf societies, and the evolving relationship between the Gulf and the other regions. The series is dedicated to advancing a non-Western perspectives for studying societies in the Gulf, and their interactions with the rest of the world.
