This event will launch a major Chatham House report on future trends in the GCC. The report considers the political, social and economic development of the Gulf monarchies in the context of current and future shifts in the structure of political economy, demographics, education and the availability of information. The author will argue that these rapid changes are likely to place strain on existing political structures and will lay out scenarios for potential political change in the different Gulf countries.
