Feb 2013 The US and the Gulf States: Uncertain Partners in a Changing Region Grantee Publication
Citation: LeBaron, Richard. The United States and the Gulf States: Uncertain Partners in a Changing Region. Rep. Washington, DC: Atlantic Council, 2013. Print
Program: International Peace and Security

The relationship between the U.S. and the Persian Gulf states as they face democratic transitions in the Arab world as well as security challenges in the Gulf, is addressed in a new issue brief published by Carnegie Corporation grantee the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East.

Senior Fellow Richard LeBaron evaluates the reaction in the Gulf states differently to the rapid political change in the region. The looming threat of Iran attaining nuclear weapons has brought greater urgency to efforts to enhance regional security, and is complicated by distrust in the Gulf over the long-term durability of the US commitment to Gulf security.

LeBaron also proposes an agenda as the basis for the United States and the Gulf states to reexamine and renew their partnership in the context of a changing region.
