Hala has taken time out of practice to work on her doctoral thesis. The subject of the thesis is the maritime delimitation of the continental shelf in the Arabian Gulf undertaken at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. A focus of the thesis is a study of existing maritime boundaries dividing the continental shelf between the Gulf states, and how the drawing of those boundaries has been affected by the presence of offshore natural resources, and islands. The need to know where such boundaries lie is crucial not only for governments in the region, but also for those bodies which are involved in the offshore extraction of oil and gas. Another focus of the study is how disputed and undefined boundaries in the continental shelf may be resolved in the light of the solutions which have already been reached in the region.
