High Turnout at Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) Pavilion During Sharjah International Book Fair 2019

Writers, journalists and academics were among a large number of visitors to the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) pavilion at Sharjah International Book Fair 2019, which was opened by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, member of the Federal Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah. A significant number of academics, experts, intellectuals and several media outlets were keen to meet with the ECSSR team and discuss the Center’s publications.

The ECSSR’s participation in Sharjah International Book Fair 2019 stems from its belief in the importance of taking part in cultural events throughout the country, particularly Sharjah International Book Fair, which is an important cultural event in the UAE and Arab world. In recent years, the exhibition has attracted pioneers of thought, culture, literature and media, and has become a feature of the UAE’s cultural and intellectual renaissance.

The Center is participating in this year’s book fair, held from Wednesday October 30 until Saturday November 9 at Expo Centre Sharjah, with a variety of its publications, including Women and Development, the latest cultural and scholarly work from H.E. Prof. Jamal Sanad Al-Suwaidi, Director General of the ECSSR. In his book, Prof. Al-Suwaidi examines the challenges related to women’s issues and their role in development, as well as the significance and advancement of the role of women in the development process.

Among its titles, the ECSSR is also presenting With United Strength: H.H. Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Leader and the Nation, in its 8th edition; Mohamed bin Zayed and Education, which highlights the insightful vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces (may God protect him), for developing the education sector in the UAE; and, Events that Changed History, by H.E. Prof. Jamal Sanad Al-Suwaidi. This is in addition to many other books, series and periodicals that the Center has published over the past twenty-five years. The ECSSR is pleased to announce a 50 percent discount on all its publications during the fair.

H.E. Prof. Al-Suwaidi will sign his book, United Arab Emirates Society in the Twenty-first Century: Issues and Challenges in a Changing World during Sharjah International Book Fair. The event will take place on Friday, November 1, 2019, from 6pm to 9pm at the ECSSR pavilion (P2) in Hall 3. The book is of great importance as it charts major transformations in an ever-changing world. In the work, His Excellency studies UAE society from a comprehensive perspective; one which encompasses political, security, economic, social, cultural and technological aspects. Its subject matter also extends to issues of national security, at the forefront of which is social security, which is one of the most critical aspects of national security in its comprehensive sense. Furthermore, social security is closely associated with all other political, economic and cultural aspects of national security.
