Special report: Tamim’s Qatar - a year of consolidation

Qatar Emir Tamim reportEmir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad’s first year in office, has been – as widely expected – a period of continuity and consolidation, not change.

In this special report, GSN reviews Tamim’s first year, considering the economy, domestic and foreign politics, the energy sector, the non-oil sector, infrastructure development, international investment, and the young emir’s ‘vision’ for his country.

It finds that, while Sheikh Tamim’s promises to streamline bureaucracy, to maintain an independent foreign policy, and to consolidate economic growth do all seem to be making (slow) progress, there is still much that is unknown about the new emir.

UAE: MBZ’s emerging legacy: a nation-state forged from conflict

The creation of a “national military ethos” in the UAE, involving Ras Al-Khaimah (RAK) and other northern emirates, has been increasingly observed since GSN began analysing in 2015 the pattern of military deaths in Yemen and growth of nationalist symbolism around ‘martyrs’ of the Yemen conflict.
