The Model of Regional Security in the Persian Gulf, Experiences and Obstacles

Document Type : Research Paper



In this paper, the security arrangements and models in thePersian Gulfis discussed from the beginning of its security system along with its triple dimensions. However, it is mentioned that theories of Dependency and Imperialism do not suffice to explain those arrangements and therefore, paying due regard to the dichotomy derived from Realism and Liberalism is needed. In this way, while considering the approaches of theUSAand theUK, the two interventionist power in the region, the author is addressing different understandings of security arrangements by all the actors involved. This paper concludes with the discussion of possible opportunities and options forIranto evolve this system.
