Dissecting and Unpacking the United Arab Emirates’ Foreign Policy

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been pursuing an active foreign policy within the Middle East region and beyond. The young state, made of the seven-member federation that was established in 1971, is now taking centre stage at both regional and international fora and attracting much attention. This event will discuss the evolution and the dynamics of the UAE’s foreign policy and the UAE’s growing regional and global role, as well as the use of its multifaceted statecraft. It will attempt to explain the visible rise of the UAE as an active and assertive political, economic, military, and diplomatic power that is taking a lead in regional affairs and shaping events over the past 15 years.
