Sharjah International Book Fair

  • 4 November 2015

The Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) took part in the 32nd Sharjah International Book Fair, held under the auspices of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al-Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah. The Book Fair, organized annually by the Department of Culture and Information of the Government of Sharjah, was held from November 6 to 16, 2013.

The ECSSR showcased a select range of its Arabic and English publications. These included both original and translated books written by internationally reputed scholars and experts in the fields of energy, international relations, security and education. Among the ECSSR’s recent releases in Arabic and English was the book, Information Technology and the Future of Education in the United Arab Emirates, which detailed how the UAE has taken concrete steps to ensure economic diversification, particularly in the creation of a competitive knowledge-based economy and has had great success at matching its education system to the demands of industry and society by incorporating the latest technology to improve education. Thus, Information Technology not only facilitates how information is imparted, but also alters the relationships between participants in the learning process; in schools, colleges and universities, whether they by teachers, technicians or parents. Among other publications of the ECSSR on display at the fair were all the issues of the ECSSR’s refereed journal Strategic Visions in 2013. The highly esteemed journal was also strategic partner of the 32nd Sharjah International Book Fair.

Other ECSSR publications on display included a range of scholarly, refereed studies in Arabic and English, analyzing various strategic, political, economic, and social issues relevant to the United Arab Emirates and the GCC, as well as the broader Arab world and relevant regional and global developments. These publications attracted widespread interest from readers, intellectuals and professional researchers worldwide and commanded a large domestic, pan-Arab and global readership.

The ECSSR’s participation at the Sharjah International Book Fair since the early years of its organization stems from the Center’s interest in contributing to the success of this annual cultural event. It also offered the Center an opportunity to be in mutually beneficial contact with intellectuals, researchers and readers who attend the Book Fair. The Sharjah International Book Fair brings together writers and their audiences to promote the value of reading, thus enriching the cultural activity of UAE society.
