Gulf Security and the UAE

The Issue of Borders and the UAE

  • 27 November 1996

As part of the lecture series held to mark the 25th year
of the Federation, the speaker focused on the Gulf
region’s border disputes, starting with a historical
account that traced the emergence of disputes that
date back to the early twentieth century. Four kinds
of conflict were pointed out including regional, local,
resource-related, and functional.
She highlighted the negative consequences of such
disputes on the relationship between the GCC countries
and the need for the proposal of reasonable solutions
from students and professors of political science in order
to avoid such disputes erupting into major struggles.
The speaker proposed a number of solutions
such as creating neutral zones and the distribution of
islands or land among the contending sides.
