Foucs: Nuclear Proliferation and the Near and Middle East












Dr. Gawdat Bahgat

Nuclear Arms Race in the Middle East: A Myth or a Reality?


The essay seeks to address the concern over whether a possible Iranian nuclear program will trigger a regional nuclear arms race. At first the author briefly discusses some theoretical perspectives on nuclear proliferation and how they apply to the Middle East. This is followed by a close examination of two case studies – Egypt and Saudi Arabia. In the final section, the conclusion is drawn that an Iran with nuclear weapons capability is likely to further destabilize the Middle East but is not likely to ignite a regional nuclear arms race.

The Changing International Relations of the Gulf Region



This paper provides an analysis of the security situation in the Gulf region and particular the states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). It argues that the region is about to face an era of strategic insecurity and that the regional security architecture that had been constructed by the British in the 20th century and then embellished by the United States will come to an end. Instead the author forecasts a broader international involvement in the Gulf region, i.e. an inclusion of European and Asian powers as relevant external actors in terms of the security arrangements of the region.
