The annual Gulf Research Meeting (GRM) took place between the 15th and 18th of July in Cambridge, providing room for consultation for the scholars working on Gulf-related issues. Two researchers of IFAT also participated in the conference organised by the Gulf Research Centre – Erzsébet N. Rózsa, our external research fellow, and Máté Szalai, our senior researcher.
The three-day long event was organised in the framework of workshops covering different topics and issues. Erzsébet N. Rózsa participated in the workshop called „A Peace Process for the Gulf: International Initiatives and Gulf Conflict Resolution” with her paper entitled “Is a Westphalian peace arrangement possible in the Persian Gulf?: The social construct behind war and peace”. Meanwhile, Máté Szalai presented his study about „Applying small state theory to the Gulf region in the framework of the English School – challenges, limitations and modifications” in the framework of the workshop Emerging Challenges in International Relations and Transnational Politics of the GCC”.
