A.   Research Interests and Awards

(a) General description of research interests

i. The political economy of Arab and Islamic states, with particular reference to Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Saudi Arabia and the smaller Arab states of the Gulf. Specific attention is focused on the social and political effects of economic liberalisation in these states. A book on the political economy of Saudi Arabia was published, The Political Economy of Saudi Arabia, with Monica Malik (Routledge, London, 2007). Earlier, a 6-volume collection of articles was jointly edited with Rodney Wilson, under the overall title The Political Economy of the Middle East(Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, 2000). The wider theoretical framework through which Middle Eastern political economy is approached are those of underdevelopment, the dynamics of rentier state economies, and liberalisation/democratisation theories.

ii. The international relations of Middle Eastern states, with particular reference to the interactions between these states and the wider international community. A recent focus has been on the impact of UN sanctions on IraqLibya and Sudan, on which a book was written:  'PariahStates' and Sanctions in the Middle East: IraqLibya and Sudan(Lynne Rienner, London, 2001). A long-running interest has been on EU policies towards, and relations with, Middle Eastern states.

iii. The Gulf and Asia. Up to the present, my publications in this field have been focused mainly on the Gulf and China, but I am now broadening the focus to Gulf relations with Asia as a whole – in particular China, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea. Two articles focused on China and the Gulf were: “China’s Growing Involvement in the Gulf”, and “China’s Intensifying Relationship with Saudi Arabia” (with Norafidah Ismail), in Shen, S, and Blanchard, J-M, Multidimensional Diplomacy of Contemporary China (New   York: Lexington Books, 2010). More widely, an edited book: Asia-Gulf Economic Relations in the 21st Century (Gerlach, Berlin, 2013).

iv.  Islam and the state: the role of religion in state-building and state-resisting, with particular reference to the Middle  East. Also issues of human rights in Islamic perspectives, focusing on the interplay between universalism and cultural relativity. The position of Muslim communities in Europe has recently come within the scope of this research interest, and has encompassed the social, economic and political conditions facing these communities. An edited work on this, jointly with Gerd Nonneman and Bogdan Szajkowski, was published in 1996: Muslim Communities in the New Europe (Ithaca, Reading,1997).

v. Legitimacy, civil society and political power in the Arab World. A recent book within this sphere is Saudi Arabia: Power, Legitimacy and Survival (Routledge, London, 2006).
