    The UAE government has paid special attention to the development of the population as the nation's wealth, and invested heavily in this regard since the establishment of the country in 1971. Citizens of the UAE enjoy a high standard of living as they are now reaping the fruits of the massive investment in education and health services. The country also made a lot of intensive effort to develop human resources, and strengthening the role and status of women in society, and to provide a high level of care and social services to beneficiaries.

    Although social change has been greatly on the UAE, particularly with regard to disorder population structure resulting from the civil expansion and the presence of large numbers of residents of foreign communities, the UAE society characterized by tolerance, harmony and openness, while maintaining the identity and traditions handed down from one generation to another.

    According to the preliminary findings resulting from the population census of 2005, which was released in mid 2006, the total population at night of the census was 3769080 people. This figure includes citizens and non-citizens, but it does not take into account about 335615 people not included in the census, either as a result of their presence outside the country during the census or the lack of willingness to cooperate and participate, which increase the actual figure for the population to 4104695 people, with an increase of 74.8 % compared to the last census in 1995 when the population was 2411041 people.

  • Education

    This rapid growth in population resulted in the need to invest in education, the UAE offers today a comprehensive education for all boys and girls from kindergarten to the university, and provide education services at all stages free of charge to citizens. There is also the sector of private education, as well as provide opportunities to complete higher studies abroad for many citizens of both sexes at the expense of the country.

    Emirates has been able to achieve breakthroughs in the field of education since the early seventies. It is now making strenuous efforts to improve the learning environment for students at all levels in line with the policy of re-evaluation of the role of the public sector. Perhaps the most important initiatives in this regard, what was launched by the Abu Dhabi Council for Education and related privatization of the education sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

    Statistics indicate that 95% of all females and 80% of males are enrolled in the final year of higher education and applying for admission to one of the institutes of higher education in the country or study abroad. Citizens can access government educational institutions for free, while many internationally recognized private institutions support the public sector. The UAE University in Al Ain is a leader in the field of higher education. In 1998, Zayed University in Abu Dhabi and Dubai was establhished to provide university education for citizens and prepare them to participate in building the society and the country. HCT also provides technical education for both sexes in 12 college spread across the UAE, working in cooperation with the commercial arm, the Center of Excellence for Applied Research and Training to meet the current needs of the workforce at the regional and global levels.

    The list of private universities in the United Arab Emirates: American University of Sharjah, American University in Dubai, the University of Sharjah, Ajman University of Science and Technology, in addition to the University of New Abu Dhabi, Hosn University in Abu Dhabi, and the branch of the Sorbonne University in Abu Dhabi.

    Dubai has allocated an area of 2.33 million square meters to build the complex called Dubai Knowledge Universities in the heart of the academic city. Emirates is also home to several vocational and technical education centers to meet the needs of those wishing to obtain hands-on training in the areas of work.

    Today, after the completion of the educational infrastructure, the focus has been more on strengthening the capabilities of the youths and prepare them to face the challenges of the twenty-first century in the field of work, and ensure sufficient jobs for new graduates. Government is also encouraging the resettlement process, especially in the private sector, in which citizens constitute a small proportion of the total labor force. A significant progress has been achieved in this fields of banks, insurance companies and human resources.

  • Women

    The UAE ensure that woman take its rightful position in society, where the Constitution guarantees the principles of social justice for all in accordance with the teachings of Islam. Under the constitution, women have also the same rights enjoyed by men in terms of legal status and rights of access to education, health and social care, and labor rights and the practice of professions. Safeguards guaranteed by the Constitution are added to the applicable legislation relating to equality and equal opportunities in all fields.

    Given all this, women now account for 22.4% of the total workforce in the UAE (compared to 5.4% in 1995), and now occupy 66% of government jobs, 30 percent are in decision-making positions.

    This positive development is due not only to the high turnout of women to education, including higher education, in which the percentage of female enrollment is 77%, but also to the decline of social restrictions regarding the employment of women, as whork is no longer seen only as a source of income, but also as an important factor for establishing personal identity. There is no doubt that the bright successes stories of women in all walks of life began to encourage Emirati women to break out of the traditional functions. However, the issue of gender inequality still need a renewed focus in order not to remain just the success stories of individual exceptional cases.

    The UAE pledged in its statement to the fifty-first session of the Commission on the Status of Women to continue its ongoing efforts to empower women and eliminate all forms of discrimination against them.

    The basic challenge remains represented in the possibility of creating an enabling environment for achieving gender equality. The General Women's Union, which was founded in 1975 under the chairmanship of HH Sheikha Fatima girl Mubarak, is a key player in this strategy by approaching many of the issues that concern the UAE women, childhood, motherhood and the family. With the development of women needs, the Women's Union has increased the responsibilities and areas of interest and expertise, and began playing an important role in the affairs of women at the regional and international levels, and participated in all the world conferences on women's issues, held under the auspices of the United Nations. In this framework, the General Women's Union currently focus on taking the necessary measures at the national level to coordinate and activate the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, and the application of the recommendations (of the Beijing Declaration) through the National Strategy for the Progress and Development of Women, a joint initiative with the United Nations Development Programme, United Nations Fund for Women's Development, government agencies and local NGOs.

    In light of the pivotal role it plays in political affairs in the UAE, the General Women's Union strive for greater participation of women in national politics. The Union was instrumental in preparing the ground for such participation. These aspirations and ambitions have been achieved, in part, when women were granted in December of 2006 the right to participate in the elections of the Federal National Council, which is the highest legislative and supervisory authority in the country where they managed to get 9 seats out of 40 seats in the Council, in addition to taking two portifolios in the current government.
