The Center for Gulf Studies is a research center under the College of Arts and Sciences at the American University of Kuwait. We aim to promote greater cultural understanding of and increased intellectual interest in the Gulf, by facilitating free and open academic discourse on a range of issues that both shape and challenge this critical region of the world. Our goal is to enable scholars as well as political and civil society actors both within and outside the region to contribute and add value to the burgeoning field of Gulf Studies. To this end, we seek to encourage, support, and cultivate interesting and original research on the Gulf, and to create an environment in which our students and faculty can interact and collaborate with researchers and activists from around the world in creative and engaging ways.
