One of GRC's main activities is the study of social science in a Gulf region
context. The Center is particularly concerned with the international relations
and politics of the GCC states.
GRC has identified more than 50 areas of critical research that are necessary
to address the current information deficit (see diagram opposite). We describe
these areas as research programs. Each program aims to cover a specific issue in
as much detail as possible. In many cases, the Center has identified bilateral relations
which may not have been fully addressed. This presents the Center and its
extensive community of contributors with the significant challenge of shedding
light on unexplored relationships between the GCC states and the world at large.
Our research interests are not restricted to international relations but also
include domestic and regional issues which affect the political, economic,
security and societal life of the GCC member states.
Each research program has a dedicated web portal which contains all the
resources necessary for a sound understanding of each issue,
