Water and food security in the Arabian Gulf by Markaz al-Imārāt lil-Dirāsāt wa-al-Buḥūth al-Istirātījīyah( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing populations and economies have led to an increase in water demand around the globe. However, there are large variations in the amounts of water available, and growing concern surrounding the uncertainty associated with these supplies. This is evident nowhere more than in the dry and arid Arabian peninsula. Global food security also faces an uncertain future. The Gulf states suffer from a substantial food gap, and all the countries in the region are net food importers. The increase in the region's population, rising income levels, and harsh weather conditions that prevent the increase of local food production, have resulted in a vast increase in the region's food imports. In this book, water and food resource management strategies are examined, as well as the policies in the Gulf states, the global geopolitics of water security, future demand trends in the Gulf region, and the particular challenges faced by the UAE in ensuring a reliable supply of food and water in the coming decades

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over 150 years, from 1820 up to the foundation of the United Arab Emirates in 1971, Britain and the emirates of the eastern Arabian Peninsula were linked by a relationship that was unique when compared to the traditional colonial models exercised in India and elsewhere. Using original archival material as well as select secondary sources, Muna M. Alhammadi charts the history of Britain's involvement in the evolution of the Trucial States - the predecessors of the modern-day United Arab Emirates - with a focus on its role in the foundation and growth of their administrative structures, security, and socio-economic development
Labor mobility : an enabler for sustainable development by Labor Mobility an Enabler for Sustainable Development (Conference)( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the rise of attention paid to the subject of migrant workers in the Gulf and controversy surrounding the conditions in which these migrants work and live, labor mobility has become a significant aspect of GCC economic development. The region is host to around 15 million expatriate workers who generate around $80 billion in annual remittances each year and support an estimated 150 million dependents in their various home countries. This book provides a variety of approaches to the subject of labor mobility as an enabler for human, economic and social development. It explores migration policy and governance in the GCC states, the potential for research collaboration between migrant-sending and -receiving countries. Containing research concerning the relationship between remittances and economic cycles in home and host countries and the implications of labor mobility for families and households, this book offers vital research for those in economic development and the study of labor in the Middle East
Islam and the west : a civilized dialogue by Islam and the West: a Civilized Dialogue (Symposium)( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interaction between the Muslim World and the West stretches back centuries and although the points of conflict are well known, the exchange of knowledge and cultural awareness cannot be under-estimated and their impact on both civilizations is palpable. Recent historical events have once again focused attention on perceived points of conflict and their associated negative connotations and the resultant criticisms and stereotypes of the West and Islam in general. In order to examine these issues and provide an in-depth overview of the relationship between the West and the Muslim World, the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) held a Symposium under the title 'Islam and the West: A Civilized Dialogue' on May 16-17, 2011 in Abu Dhabi, hosting a group of distinguished experts from various academic, political and educational backgrounds in conjunction with the School of Policy and International Affairs at the University of Maine, United States. This book comprises a valuable collection of the papers presented at the Symposium. It identifies how relations between the West and the Muslim World have developed; where mutual interests meet and diverge; and prospects for peaceful co-existence. This book draws on the in-depth knowledge and varied opinions of its contributors who share a wealth of experience in all facets of inter-cultural awareness, European and Islamic history, contemporary international relations, media and education, and includes experts native to the Muslim World and the West as well as those who have chosen both regions as their adoptive homes

Arab media in the information age by Markaz al-Imārāt lil-Dirāsāt wa-al-Buḥūth al-Istirātījīyah( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and Arabic and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arab media has been able to effect a qualitative and quantitative improvement in the past few years. Today, it is disseminating more information to a wider and growing audience. In fact, it has not only made its presence felt on the world stage but has even been able to influence the course of international events. This change has largely been brought about by Arab satellite news channels, Arab websites, and international Arabic newspapers. In spite of these achievements, the Arab media still suffers from several structural shortcomings, which it needs to immediately address and overcome. The book contributes towards promoting the cause of the Arab media, enrich its expertise and chart its future course. It seeks to diagnose the ills facing the Arab media; assess its orientation, content, and performance; study its social responsibilities and functions; evaluate the extent of its influence on Arab public opinion and its role in presenting Western views to the Arab world. The book also studies the experiences of the new Arab satellite channels. In addition, the book delves into certain contentious issues such as the independence and credibility of the media and the relationship of the press with commercial interests and political influence. It also covers a comparative study of the Western and Arab media and examines the role of the press in times of war, besides focusing on the growing role of the Internet in the Arab world. The book draws on the expertise and insight of a distinguished group of contributors, which consist of eminent media professionals, prominent researchers and academicians from the Arab world and beyond
The future of warfare in the 21st century by Markaz al-Imārāt lil-Dirāsāt wa-al-Buḥūth al-Istirātījīyah( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concepts and theories of war-fighting have evolved radically over the past twenty years, resulting in equally radical changes in military doctrine. Emergent non-conventional security threats have led to a proliferation of asymmetric conflicts, while new modes of virtual warfare have developed in the realms of cyberspace. The ECSSR 18th Annual Conference, The Future of Warfare in the 21st Century, held at the Center on April 9–10, 2013 in Abu Dhabi, and the resultant papers contained in this volume, explore how warfare may be affected by technological, strategic and civil developments in the coming years, particularly the revolutionary use of remote and autonomous systems on the modern battlefield, the budding application of cyber attack and defense strategies, and the future direction of intelligence operations in the 21st century. The authors also discuss political and civil influences on the future of warfare, particularly in terms of the evolving state of civil–military relations; the growing employment of contractors in contemporary conflicts; and the complex evolving relationship between defense industries and military establishments
Gulf security in the twenty-first century by Markaz al-Imārāt lil-Dirāsāt wa-al-Buḥūth al-Istirātījīyah( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The connection between regional instability and the preservation of global security is nowhere more sensitive than in the Gulf. Events since the 1990-1991 Gulf War continue to confirm the fragile interaction among states in the region and their susceptibility to external forces. Gulf Security in the Twenty-First Century brings together some of the foremost area experts to explore the most pressing issues, including military threats to the region, obstacles to economic development and socioeconomic harmonization, and challenges to political stability. In particular, the work examines Iran's often enigmatic foreign policy vis-à-vis its Gulf neighbors, Iraq's resurgent military threat, choices and constraints confronting US Middle East policy, and Europe's inability to identify and pursue a united policy to safeguard its economic interests in the area. These topics are further illuminated with an analysis of Russia's historical attempt at balancing foreign policy objectives in the Gulf with its enduring interests in Central Asia. The potentially explosive issues of religious radicalism and the challenges of democratic pluralism are discussed in an effort to ascertain the potential of political Islam to disturb or enhance regional security. Similarly, the problems inhibiting the settlement of territorial disputes in and around the Gulf are brought into focus to illustrate lingering historical tensions among neighboring states. To round out the book's topical coverage, several contributors shed light on the region's unfettered dependence on foreign labor, growing demographic pressures, associated social and economic transformations, and challenges to responsive public policy
With united strength : H.H. Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the leader and the nation by Markaz al-Imārāt lil-Dirāsāt wa-al-Buḥūth al-Istirātījīyah( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Arabic and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Visionary statesmen who have created an enduring state edifice through purposeful consensus and persuasion remain a historical rarity. The formation of the United Arab Emirates on December 2, 1971 under the inspiring leadership of its founding father, H.H. Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, is a unique example of the building of a prosperous nation that has earned its founder his rightful place among the outstanding statesmen of all time. Against the backdrop of the British withdrawal from the Arabian Gulf region, it was H.H. Shaikh Zayid who accomplished the complex task of unifying the erstwhile Trucial States, creating the only thriving federal state in the Middle East. While fulfilling his personal destiny as the chosen leader, H.H. Shaikh Zayid strengthened the nation by uniting disparate tribal groups and sustained it against formidable challenges. He pioneered the modernization of the country and ultimately realized his dream of an effective framework for collaboration with neighboring Gulf states. The UAE has since become a constructive force within the region and beyond, exemplifying the principles of national unity, regional solidarity, international cooperation and religious tolerance. This book adopts a scholarly approach in analyzing the UAE's unique federal experience, its phenomenal achievements and H.H. Shaikh Zayid's far-sighted policies. It is an in-depth study of the birth of a progressive nation and the pivotal role of its leader, based largely on unpublished historical records and documents. The factual foundation of the book and its meticulous documentation make it a valuable record covering an important era in the contemporary history of the Arab Gulf region

Technology and the future of energy( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Energy plays a key role in realizing sustainable development in both advanced and developing countries alike, and it is therefore vital that investment in technological development be sustained in order to maximize the benefits of currently available energy resources. However, the question as to how that investment should be directed is a contentious one, and involves numerous parallel questions relating to efficiency, resource availability, cost effectiveness and environmental impact, among others. Furthermore, uncertainty remains as to the extent to which technological innovation can satisfy future global energy requirements, regardless of the future energy balance

Iraq : reconstruction and future role( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most momentous events in history are subject to heated debate, widely differing opinions and conflicting evaluations. As an event of significance in modern history, the 2003 war in Iraq is a subject that elicits a variety of views and evokes deep emotions. While the legitimacy of the war remains open to question, attention has largely shifted from the debates in the international arena to developments inside Iraq itself. All involved, and even those who are not, desire to see a peaceful, territorially intact Iraq, playing its rightful role among the community of nations. As such, the two principal areas of focus for the future of Iraq are security and reconstruction." "It is because the outcome of developments in Iraq is of such importance to the Middle East region and the Arabian Gulf in particular that the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research hosted a series of lectures and a symposium entitled "Iraq: Reconstruction and Future Role," in Abu Dhabi, on September 14-15, 2003. Specialists in the field of Iraqi politics, development and energy were invited to share their views on the war, its aftermath and possible scenarios for the future." "This volume is a valuable collection of these expert views. It provides strategic perspectives on a range of pertinent factors, such as an evaluation of the reconstruction effort, Iraqi political factions, Iraq-US relations, developments in the oil sector and the impact of a predominantly Shia Iraq on its neighbors and particularly the Arab Gulf states.

Iran's nuclear program : realities and repercussions( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Arabic and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counter What are Iran's nuclear ambitions? How will these ambitions affect regional and global security? International suspicion surrounding Iran's nuclear activities was first aroused in the late 1980s but it was not until the International Atomic Energy agency (IAEA) launched an investigation into the Iranian nuclear program, that it was revealed Iran had enriched uranium and separated plutonium in undeclared facilities in the absence of IAEA safeguards. Iran's failure to acknowledge limitations on nuclear fuel cycle activities, despite both offers of assistance and the threat of sanctions, has alarmed the international community. 'Iran's Nuclear Program' analyses the most important issues surrounding Iran's nuclear capability and its potential to develop atomic weapons; the changes and developments in Iran's nuclear program since the 2005 Iranian presidential elections; Israeli foreign policy in relation to Iran; the possible impact of an Iranian nuclear program on the security of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC); and the prospect of military action against Iran. This is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand Iran's atomic development, a threat that has the ability to destabilize the Gulf and the broader Middle East region
