GSN archive

The online GSN archive stretches over 40 years, providing an incredible depth of independent coverage on Gulf politics and the region's ruling elites.

Register now for free access to GSN and Saudi Arabia Newsletter issues for the 1979-2003 period.

Stretching back to an era where high-level analysis for businesses and embassies operating in the region were only published in paper form, these searchable pdfs provide a wealth of analysis that is not available elsewhere.

Maps and graphics

GSN has an extensive archive of maps and graphics, most of which were originally published within the newsletter to illustrate articles - these range from country maps providing an overview of key infrastructure and energy facilities to graphics ilustrating key policies and economic data.
