Format: Book           


Summary: The Gulf States and the Horn of Africa explores the complex nature of interactions between states in the Persian Gulf and their counterparts in the Horn of Africa. Focussing on the nature of interregional connections between the Gulf and the Horn, it explores the multifaceted nature of relations between two increasingly important subregions. Bringing together scholars focussing on both regions, the book offers a rigorous analysis of the changing nature of relations between the different subregions and also the complexity of competition within each sub region. Considering strategic competition between Saudi Arabia and Iran, along with international engagement such as joint anti-piracy operations, counterterrorism cooperation, shipping routes, and economic development, the volume provides valuable insight into the strategic importance of these interactions.0Drawing on a range of subject expertise and field research across case study countries, the volume adds to the sparse literature on the regional and international politics of the Horn of Africa and Red Sea, gleaning specific insights through contemporary reflections across the book. This is essential reading for students and researchers interested in the Horn of Africa and the evolving regional geopolitics of the Gulf.
