The region of the Gulf and the Arabian Peninsula consists of nine countries, the six GCC countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as well as Iran, Iraq and Yemen. Together these nine countries have a combined population of approximately one hundred and eighty million people. Around half of them are under 24 years old.
The Oxford Gulf and Arabian Peninsula Studies Forum (OxGAPS) works to increase knowledge of the region, its challenges and potential and offers a space for interaction between those from the region and others interested to learn about it, in the City and University of Oxford and beyond.
