Abstract:

This volume addresses the historical structures and current dynamics of Oman's regionalization processes and their political, economic and social dimensions. It is based on an interdisciplinary and trans-regional dialogue between scholars from different social sciences and area studies such as political science, economics, management, economic and social geography, history, social anthropology and linguistics as well as Middle East/West Asian, gulf and African studies, and develops four major axes of research: Oman's integration into global and regional flows of goods, capital, people and ideas; The multi-scaled political negotiation of such integration (or disintegration) processes; Consequences of suchlike processes and forms of regionalization for (translocal) actors; Ideas and strategic communication of regional belonging and the constitution of regions.0.
