The Gulf States in International Affairs
This series focuses on the contemporary Gulf region with special reference to its politics, economics and international relations, as well as its projection of influence and engagement with influences from around the world. Books in this series might include research on topics such as, but not limited to: foreign policy analysis; ethno-religious conflict; economic and military interventionism; energy politics; alliance patterns and the regional balance of power; nationalism, regionalism and the Gulf milieu; rentier, late-rentier and post-rentier models; trade and investment relations (including engagement with China's Belt and Road Initiative); political transition and consolidation; arms control and non-proliferation. The scope of the series encompasses members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC): Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar, as well as Iraq, Iran and Yemen. Volumes which refer substantially to the Gulf region, states or related foreign actors (which might typically involve the US, European powers, Russia and East Asian partners) will also be considered from across the social sciences and the humanities. The series welcomes volumes which shed new light on areas of theoretical, conceptual and empirical inquiry to advance our understanding of the region during a period of rapid change. All books will undergo double-blind peer review and adhere to high quality and rigorous standards.
