Political risk series: Politics in the Middle East

Mon 29 Oct 2018

Political risk series: 'Politics in the Middle East'. Kristian Ulrichsen, fellow for the Middle East at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy, speaks to Julia Demidova from OMFIF. They discuss the political structure and dynamics of the Gulf Co-operation Council states: Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. They also discuss the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as well as the role of the Turkish military and expansion in the Middle East, the Gulf's relationship with Iran, and the GCC's preference for regional bilateralism over multilateralism.
