Project description

In light of the growing financial geography literature, this project studies the integration of ‘emerging’ Gulf markets into global financial markets. In particular, the project apllies the ‘securitization chain’ concept, which analyzes the geographies and practices of actors involved in the production of securitized assets, and analyzes the consequences of the resulting integration for Gulf cities.
