Cinzia Bianco podcast discusses Gulf monarchies

Posted by jenhoward - Thursday, 29 Feb 2024


On this week’s episode of POMEPS Middle East Political Science Podcast, Cinzia Bianco joins Marc Lynch to discuss her new book, The Gulf monarchies after the Arab Spring: Threats and security.

This book applies an original theoretical framework to unpack the threat perceptions and strategic calculus driving the behaviour of new impactful regional players in the Middle East and North Africa. Bianco looks at how the small monarchies of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) spent the decade between 2011 and 2022 trying to re-shape regional equilibria as protagonists to provide reading keys to the past, present, and future of policy-making in the Gulf monarchies, middle powers destined to play an oversized role in the new multipolar world.
