Islamic Activism in the Gulf: Saudi Arabia in Comparative Perspective

Islamic Activism in the Gulf: Saudi Arabia in Comparative Perspective

  • 8 June 1996

The lecture focused on Islamic activism in the Gulf
and its implications for stability in the region. Saudi
Arabia was presented as a case study with four Saudi
Islamist groups being discussed. The main argument
examined state-society relations and the implications
of this for strong states with weak hegemonies. The
comparative aspect of the lecture considered the Shi’a
movement in Bahrain and the Islamic movement in
Oman. From these examples, implications for regional
stability were drawn and expounded upon.
