An Inquiry into the Politics of Elitism in the GCC States: The Security Dilemma

Auther : Abdullah Juma Al-Haj

This paper explores the politics of elitism in the Gulf states. Within the context, an attempt is made to identify the Gulf elites and to explain why this study of political elitism is appropriate to the Gulf states. In addition, comments on the future of the Gulf political elites is put forward. The paper concentrates on the circumstances of the political systems and political elites of these states since the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990, and its consequences. The paper addresses several points including the technique of the research, identifying the Gulf political elites, the dilemma of method selection, the role of Islam on the elites behavior, the future of the political elites, the domestic dimension of the elites stability, the regional environment surrounding the Gulf elites, the domestic dimension of the elites continuity, and the threats of immigrants to the security of the Gulf societies. The article refers to an extensive range of Arabic and English material including interviews, official documents, correspondence, speeches, newspaper articles, and secondary literature related to the concept of political elites and the Gulf states political literature. Several hypotheses are presented, and throughout the article there is an extensive discussion of many dimensions and aspects in support of these hypotheses. The conclusion offers the reader a comprehensive proposal of the difficulties that the political elites might face in the future. In addition, listings of notes and references in Arabic and/or English are provided.
