Abstract

This chapter presents results of a grounded theory literature search on sustainability of the disabled population in countries of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC), which are composed of the countries surrounding the southern coast of the Persian Gulf and Oman. Research focused on the adaptability of the GCC’s Arabic culture to accommodate a growing number of disabled people in its population, the potential areas of an increase or a decrease in its disabled population, and the advantages and potential problems in the societies of the GCC’s constituent countries.
