Fresh Perspectives from the GCC.

Three scholars from Gulf Cooperation Council countries offer fresh perspectives on economic inclusion and sustainable growth in Oman, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The work stems from a Baker Institute-Chatham House workshop held as part of a project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York titled “Building Pluralistic and Inclusive States Post-Arab Spring.”
