Tribes play a significant role in Arab society, especially in the Gulf region. Their influence is felt politically and socially among their people, almost like a second government. While tribes are similar in their structural systems, they differ in characteristics that define them to this day.

AGISW organized a discussion on this topic through a book titled "Tribal Dynamics in the Gulf: Past and Present." The writing, interesting and straightforward, sheds light on the historical and contemporary significance of tribes. In the tightly knit Gulf region, family branches of one tribe often spread over different countries, creating bonds that influence relations between countries.

The book explores and explains the varying degrees of tribal influence. It also delves into the complex relationships and political effects within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, offering valuable insights into both past and present societies.
