GCC-Iran relations are at the heart of important political dynamics in the Middle East today.

This is not limited to the ongoing disputes in the Gulf, one of the most important strategic

locations globally. Iran and the GCC states also find themselves on opposing the Syrian

and to some extent the Iraqi conflicts.

This volume traces the origins of the troubled relations between Iran and the majority of

the GCC monarchies. It discusses not only geostrategic rivalries, but also matters of identity

which have been of increased importance since 2010.

While important differences are noticeable among the GCC monarchies in regard to their

willingness to engage Iran, the difficult relationship between Saudi Arabia and Iran puts a strain

on the possibilities for engagement between Iran and the GCC as a whole.
