The Persian Gulf has long been an area of political and
economic importance. As the United States withdraws from Iraq, regional powers
are stepping in to fill the vacuum. Saudi Arabia and Iran are seeking to expand
their spheres of influence in both war-torn Syria and Yemen.
Dr. Robert Barrett, a scholar and Gulf expert with the Middle
East Institute, will discuss the intricacies of the Gulf-Security System
between the Arabian Gulf and the West and how it has impacted the stability and
modernization of the region. He states that in order to predict the future of
the Gulf with any degree of certainty one must be familiar with the history of
the Persian Gulf.
Join the WAC-DC and author Dr. Roby Barrett as we discuss his book and
the future of relations with the states of the Persian Gulf.
