About Center for Gulf Studies
Academic Events
We regularly organize a variety of academic events such as lectures, panel discussions, roundtables, and workshops that focus on our main research themes and that bring together scholars, public figures, civil society actors, and students from Kuwait, the region, and the wider world.
