Abstract of the book: Nearly four decades have passed since the establishment of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in 1981. In a deeply divided and dysfunctional region, for some it is still an anti-Arab forum that keeps Arab divisions alive, for many others the it is a beacon of hope for Arab integration efforts and for wider prosperity. The contributors to this volume explore the policies and priorities of GCC states, the tensions within and across the organisation, and behavioural traits of its key actors. Several also pay close attention to the GCC’s interactions with the wider region and in particular such countries as Iran and Turkey.
