ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
Indonesian - UAE relations
 
Paper Proposal Text :
I propose to write a paper on UAE-Indonesian relations and the interests underpinning them. This will include geo-political interests, security, trade, labor markets, tourism, investment, and Islamic and cultural ties. I will analyze the threats, challenges and opportunities each respective country sees in the other for advancing its strategic interests and where the bi-lateral relationship fits in the UAE’s strategy for the Indian Ocean.

Research for this paper will be linked to a field studies visit to Indonesia and Australia in March 2017 for the UAE’s National Defense College that I will co-facilitate and for the college’s field studies course for which I am Course Coordinator. My research may include interviews and observations from conversations with UAE and Indonesian officials, as well as data from literature on each country’s respective strategic interests and bi-lateral relations.
