This week on Banter, AEI Resident Scholar Karen Young joins the show to discuss the regional social and political implications of economic reforms underway in the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries– Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the UAE, and Oman. She recently published a report detailing the specific economic reforms in these countries which you can find at the link below. In addition to her work at AEI, Young also teaches courses on the international relations and economy of the Middle East at George Washington University and at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
