Bahrain - Between Two Seas

Dr. Zia Salim

Assistant Professor of Geography, CSU Fullerton

The Arab Gulf states are some of the largest global recipients of labor migrants; the region has the second highest rate of urbanization in the world. However, little is known about the experiences of white-collar migrants to the region or the ways in which urban residents experience and perceive urbanization processes. In this presentation, Dr. Salim will describe the urban and social geographies associated with gated housing through an examination of the place attachment and sense of community of residents of gated housing compounds in Bahrain. His research findings highlight the ways in which the built and social environments of compound residents relate to each other.
