THE LOCAL AGENT AND HIS ROLE IN FORMING THE BRITISH POLICY IN THE TRUCIAL COAST( 1823 - 1949 )

Auther : Dr. Fatima Al-Sayegh

 

         The British domination lasted for about two centuries on the Gulf coast and the Emirates is part of it.  That domination was not a direct one, in the sense of a military occupation.  But Britain depended on the treaties with Sheikhs to protect its interests in the area.

        This study aims to bring out the role of the local agent who acted as a representative of Britain in the Gulf area to draw the British policy towards the Gulf coast.

        The study is divided into three historical stages:

-  The first stage extended from 1823 to 1850 where the agent was chosen from Persian coast people.

-  The second stage was from 1850 to 1936 where the agent position restricted in the (Serkal family), who played a distinguished role in forming the British policy towards the area.

-  The third stage extended from 1936 to 1949 where the agent was chosen from the Arabian Gulf people, because Britain was looking for certain qualifications in the appointed agent.

          And the local agent position lasted till 1949 where Britain exchanged it into the political officer system.
