The United Arab Emirates leads in Peace and order due to the presence of soft power, which is a form of soft religious fundamentalism. Soft power in this case refers to Islam and the UAE is very strict about their religious freedoms. There are no Human Rights abuses or discrimination and the government protects its citizens’ well from violence of any sort. Since the UAE is a conservative country, there are not many things the people can do, which is not allowed in UAE.
However, the most important thing that the UAE leads in peace and order is the promotion of Human rights, and it wants to promote a universal human rights agenda and the universal acceptance of the human person. Therefore, it is very important for the UAE to have a strong economy so that people have jobs. Also, the government promotes peace and unity at all levels and works hard to promote the normalization of the political system in UAE. The major international NGOs have been doing a lot to promote peace and stability in UAE and they have seen some progress in terms of UAE peace efforts. Unfortunately there is no doubt that the human rights situation in UAE is still quite bad, but there is some hope as the head of the Human Rights UAE program believes that over time, the situation will improve.
There is a slow but gradual process of normalization in UAE, and the key is to continue promoting the normalization efforts at all levels. The key players in the region include Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and other oil producing countries like Iran. However, this is not going to be possible overnight. It will take time for UAE to adjust to the changes and bring peace to the country, but it is optimistic by the look of the economy.
