Description

A prime purpose of the conference series is to expand the academic literature analysing the military and political dimensions of Gulf security, particularly the role of the global powers. The geostrategic and political factors that define the region, from the physical approaches to the Gulf, to the Gulf States themselves, will be assessed.
Individual sessions will examine the unique and shared challenges facing specific states. This will be followed by wider thematic sessions including energy, economic and military security and finally the role of external powers in the Gulf region.
Paper proposals are invited from prospective participants in the following topics:
• Approaches to the Gulf: Yemen, Oman, Indian Ocean
• Saudi Arabia
• Iran
• Iraq
• The Gulf States: Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE
• Energy and economic security
• Military security
• The ‘Great Powers’ and the Gulf (United States, Europe, Russia, China, India)
PAPER PROPOSAL DEADLINE: 31 March 2010
Those wishing to present a paper should send a proposed title and abstract of no more than 300 words by e-mail attachment along with a short CV. Paper presenters and participants must cover their own travel and accommodation to participate in the conference and pay the conference registration fee.
