The Gulf Crisis: The View from Qatar


The blockade of Qatar that began in June 2017 has not only had important long-term implications for life in Qatar, but also cast a giant shadow over future relations between Gulf neighbors. The social, political, and economic impact across the wider international community has also been significant. In this volume “The Gulf Crisis: The View from Qatar”, fifteen Doha-based scholars and experts offer insider accounts, outlining how this blockade has influenced and changed Qatar’s economy, politics, and society; how it has impacted regional and international diplomatic, security, and strategic relations; and how it has been covered in traditional and social media outlets. A series of photographs is also included, providing an illuminating visual record of events. The result is an unmatched chronicle of the dynamics of the blockade in its first year.
