The Global Studies Center at the Gulf University for Science and Technology (GSC at GUST) is a research center working on topics involving global developments. We pursue research on politics, culture, society, history, environmental studies and many more. This blog intervenes in current or unfolding issues in global studies through submission. It showcases Global Studies articles, provides book reviews, and interviews. We promote critical conversation in these particular areas.

The blog is moderated. Please send your post to Dr. Thorsten Botz: [email protected] with “GSC blog” in the subject line.
