The various states of the broader Persian Gulf are often simply and mistakenly viewed from Western-centric perspectives or as mere products of their petroleum wealth. In reality, each state has their own differing objectives and are developing in their own unique manner. It can also be argued that 'for 250 years the traditional Gulf monarchies have proven to be more stable and enduring than the imperial Persian-Iranian model or the defunct Western-style republics of the region'. Dr. Roby Barrett will survey the varying histories of the Gulf States; and what the present and future might hold, including the impacts of the wars in the region, any possible changes in their models of governance and the different rivalries and alliances within the region.
