This backdrop to this year’s course is the changing geopolitical significance of the

region, and the evolving role of Middle Eastern and Gulf states in the Horn of Africa.

Considering both historical trends and continuities, the course will examine the ways

in which long-standing dynamics of state development, collapse and reform, and intrastate

relations are being influenced by this changing geopolitical environment. The

course will cast a critical eye over the region’s developmental, humanitarian, political

and security challenges, and potential trajectories. Our diverse teaching staff will bring

expert insights from new research, informed, as ever, by their deep knowledge of the

culture and history of the peoples of the Horn of Africa.
