"Read with the ECSSR"

“Read with the ECSSR”

  • 14 December 2016

Since its establishment almost 25 years ago, the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) has been successful in achieving its goal of encouraging reading,  writing, translation and research; it has topped Arab research centers in terms of publishing, with more than 1100 publications, including original books, translated books, studies, lectures, conference books, research papers and special publications.

In producing this large number of volumes, the ECSSR’s focus was not limited to quantity, but extended to quality as well; its publications cover key issues of priority for the UAE society as well as the Gulf and Arab regions. These publications have become important sources of documented information and main references for studies and research. As part of its initiative for the “Year of Reading 2016”,  the ECSSR has distributed over 150,000 books to more than 480 public and private entities in all seven emirates of the country.

In addition, the ECSSR has one of the largest libraries in the country, namely the UAE Federation Library, which holds numerous books, references, encyclopedias, periodicals, private documents, official reports and electronic databases. In total, the holdings of this library exceed one million items in both Arabic and English, covering the Center’s areas of interest. As such, the ECSSR is truly a distinguished cultural and academic edifice that has enriched Arab libraries with serious academic and scientific publications, thereby enhancing cultural interaction all over the world.
