This project has started in September 2018 and is set up as a 3-year initiative that seeks to develop a roadmap for regional security in West Asia and the Arabian Peninsula – a region that includes the GCC states, Iran, Iraq and Yemen. The project aims at generating an overall “understanding” (or tafahum) among regional stakeholders on a joined process towards regional security in West Asia and the Arabian Peninsula. In the course of this project, workshops and other dialogue fora, resulting in publications, will pave the way to constructing ideational pillars for an overall agreement of how to define a regional security architecture. Tafahum is implemented in cooperation with the Gulf Research Center Foundation and funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
Project duration: September 2018 – August 2021
