THE DEVELOPMENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: A CASE OF A DISCIPLINE IN THE MAKING

Auther : By: Dr. Abdulkhaleq Abdulla

The study of the development of political science is a growing field. This paper is the first comprehensive discussion of the development of political science in the United Arab Emirates. It attempts to explain the basic character of political science in the United Arab Emirates as a new academic discipline. Its development and the timing of its emergence are seen as the result of interaction of three broad factors. They are:

  1. The establishment of Emirates University in 1977.
  2. The rapid social and economic changes of Emirates society since the emergence of the UAE as an independent country in 1971.
  3. The impact of political scientists from outside the U.A.E. who played the pivotal role in the development of political science as an independent discipline.

However, the paper proceeds within a theoretical framework, which links the development of the discipline to the internal socio-political factors that have conditioned its initial emergence and subsequent unfolding.
