PhD Research

David Wearing - Britain's relationship with the states of the Gulf Cooperation Council

My thesis will provide an account of the relationship between Britain and the states of the Gulf Cooperation Council in the realms of security, economics and politics/diplomacy. My analysis will be rooted in Marxist theories of imperialism, while also identifying where this theoretical perspective is either unable to explain certain aspects of the subject, or can be built upon in order to do so.
