Oman

A country steeped in valleys and values

While its neighbors in the United Arab Emirates construct ever-taller skyscrapers in a race towards the heavens, Oman is a country content to let its beautiful terrains and timeless traditions do the talking. The Middle East’s oldest independent state is a land without ego; modern, but not excessive, and filled with some of the friendliest people in the Persian Gulf. Oman will represent our first term in the Arab world, and our projects here will likely explore a wide range of themes exclusive to the region.

These projects might include: examining the challenges Oman faces due to its dependence on oil revenues; measuring the impact of the Arab Spring on Oman and the economic, social, and political actions taken by Sultan Qaboos in its wake; meeting with parliament members to discuss gender equality and the role of women in Omani society; speaking with local environmentalists on the creative ways Oman is dealing with drought and limited rainfall; or conducting a roundtable discussion on how freedom of expression differs in Oman compared with our other three 2018-19 host countries, China, Costa Rica, and Greece.
