Asianisation of the Persian Gulf

  • Leader: Prof. Anoush Ehteshami, Durham University
  • Building on CASAW’s previous research initiative of East Asia and the Middle East, and a joint UK FCO/China roundtable in Beijing on China and the Arab Spring, the research network investigates the emergence and rapid consolidation of a wholly Asian nexus in which west Asia and south and east Asia constitute the core of a new pan-Asian community being predicated on a widening network of economic, cultural, security and political contacts. Issues of language use and cultural juxtapositions and synergies are be highlighted.
