“The Gulf and Asia: Political Relations and Strategic Options in a Developing Scenario (China, India, South Korea and Japan)”. At the Gulf Research Meeting.
“The Gulf and Asia: Political Relations and Strategic Options in a Developing Scenario (China, India, South Korea and Japan)”. At the Gulf Research Meeting.
This workshop, extending over the three days of the Gulf Research Meeting in July 2013, focuses on how political and strategic relations between the Gulf and leading Asian powers may develop over the next 10 years. The intention is to look at the existing political and defence strategies being pursued by all the states and powers concerned, take into account the extent to which their economic development depend on what the other states/powers can provide, assess whether the Gulf States will in fact need external strategic support, compare the potential Asian strategic contribution with that which can be obtained from elsewhere, and assess the potential for different non-Gulf powers to work together under a common security umbrella.
The directors of the workshop are Professor Tim Niblock (University of Exeter) and Professor Yangguang (Chinese Academy of Social Sciences).
Details on registration for the workshop can be found on the Gulf Research Meeting website: http://grm.grc.net.

Proposals for Research on Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC
The Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS) at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar announces a major research initiative designed to enhance our understanding of Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC. Despite the increasing dominance of Asian migrants to the region, current estimates are that there are still somewhere around 4 million non-Gulf Arabs throughout the GCC states, or over 25 percent of the total migrant population. The Arab migrant community in the Gulf is predominantly composed of Egyptians, Yemenis, Palestinians, Jordanians, and Syrians. While the study of migration to the Gulf is increasingly garnering attention from a number of academics and interested observers, the bulk of ongoing empirically-based research efforts are focused on non-Arab migrants. The Arab migrant communities present in the Gulf have been a neglected area and merit further scholarly discussion and focus. In line with this, CIRS is launching a new multi-disciplinary research initiative entitled “Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC.” Our goal is to explore questions related to the topic through funding empirically-grounded, theoretically informed research proposals.
CIRS seeks to stimulate the collection of reliable data and the production of sound analysis on this topic. Priority will be given to projects that propose original, empirically-grounded research involving fieldwork on topics related to Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC. Award recipients are expected to become active participants in the CIRS research initiative on the issue. This may include travel to Doha for working group meetings, public talks, or authorship of a chapter for an edited volume.
The maximum amount per grant award is US $10,000 and the awards can last up to a maximum of one year. Researchers interested in applying should send a cover letter and detailed research proposal that conforms to the guidelines outlined in the Request for Proposals on the CIRS website. Proposal submissions are due January 15, 2013.
For inquiries and grant application submission, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
