  • Understanding Dubai's city diplomacy: actors and drivers
    • Authors: Eduardo A.W. De Menezes, Laís V. Da Silva, Felipe F. Luz, Carlos A. Cimini <suffix>Jr.</suffix>, Sandro C. Amico
      Pages: 282 - 300
      Abstract: Dubai is one of the few cities in the GCC region which stands as an example of successful diversification of a formerly resource-based economy. Investments in infrastructure, strategic sectors abroad and liberal trade policies earned Dubai the reputation of a cosmopolitan, global city. Its recent success story, however, has attracted little academic research so far. Therefore, this study is a first approach to understanding the drivers and actors of Dubai's international reach. Using parts of Kuznetsov's analytical framework borrowed from the paradiplomacy discourse, this study traces generic and specific aspects that motivated Dubai's international actions. It looks at legal, social, and economic factors to understand the nature of Dubai's entrepreneurial city diplomacy approach. Gaining insights from local leadership styles and Dubai's political organisation, this paper concludes that Dubai's de jure competencies are extensive in the fields of economic and social development. In contrast, Dubai's activity at the multilateral city diplomacy level is reduced and substantially left to local competitors. To counter this trend, Dubai had to re-evaluate policies and collaborate closely with the national government in Abu Dhabi.

  • Tourism development in Kuwait: examining the political-economic challenges
           in a unique rentier economy
    • Authors: Cody Morris Paris, Belisa Marochi, Simon Rubin
      Pages: 301 - 315
      Abstract: This article explores the challenges Kuwait faces to develop tourism due to the particularly unique political-economic system of popular rentierism. Kuwait's tourism industry is relatively underdeveloped in comparison to other Gulf Cooperation Council countries and has not received much attention by tourists, policy-makers, and scholars. This study provides both a macro-level analysis of the political economic obstacles to tourism development in Kuwait and the more micro-level challenges that have resulted, particularly in relation to proposed mega-development projects. While insights from this study are useful for understanding the role of tourism in the rentier economies, this study also further theorises tourism within the field of international relations and political economy and shows how tourism development is of particular importance for public diplomacy in the current global arena.

  • The UAE-Tunisia diplomatic relations: a subtle balance between
           economy and security?
    • Authors: Cody Morris Paris, Belisa Marochi, Simon Rubin
      Pages: 316 - 329
      Abstract: This article examines the relations between the United Arab Emirates and Tunisia and how the Arab identity interferes in diplomatic relations. These countries have a history of cordial relations that quietly evolved toward reciprocal economic benefits and security under the implicit paradigm of what may be called a 'patronage'. Under the administration of the Tunisian president Ben Ali, the interests of the two parties, states as well as non-state actors such as the emirate of Dubai, converged. The UAE and Tunisia nurtured a hierarchical relationship that reinforced economic and political ties but that also inevitably endured several setbacks on the path to revolution and the rise of the Islamist movements in Tunisia. Ultimately, both the financial crisis of 2008 and the global security crises with the rise of Daesh tested the principle of brotherhood entrenched in the Middle East.

  • Education in the UAE: the relevance of international human rights law and
           social welfare for a sustainable economy
    • Authors: David Keane, Tenia Kyriazi
      Pages: 330 - 347
      Abstract: Taking into account the strategic importance of education for the economic and social welfare, as well as the origins and meaning of the right to education in international human rights law, this paper examines the relevance of the right to the UAE and analyses the key elements that emerge from the UAE's engagement with the UN treaty bodies and special procedures, specifically, the Committee on the Rights of the Child, the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women and the Special Rapporteurs on racism and on the sale of children. Moreover, outlining the meaning of the dialogue undertaken by UN human rights bodies, its significance for promoting the role of the UAE in the international community and its relevance for advancing UAE education in a range of spheres, this paper examines their recommendations and suggests pathways towards enhancing dialogue and adopting a rights-based approach to education in the UAE.

      Abstract: Globally, interest has increased in the relationship and role of civil society, as a process of educational change, in national and subnational educational spaces (Mundy and Murphy, 2001). This conceptual paper lends itself - using Robertson and Dale's (2015) critical cultural political economy of education framework (CCPEE) - to the overall aim of identifying if Arab civil societies have a role in the process of change within Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) higher education, with what power, and with what impact. The paper specifically considers how civilisation analysis (Arnason, 2003) can be used as a theoretical framework to investigate the 'culture' in the CCPEE in general and civil society in particular. Analysing Arab modernity, culture and societies, using civilisation analysis (CA) as a theoretical framework, offers a means of accessing deeply entrenched sets of meanings and practices allowing for comparative interpretations of societal differences in education and a new way to understand similarity and differences, convergence and diversity in the modern world (Dale and Robertson, 2016).

  • The Ibrahim Index of African Governance: grounding the selection of its
           conceptual indicators into theoretical frameworks
    • Authors: David Keane, Tenia Kyriazi
      Pages: 359 - 387
      Abstract: The Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG) is a structured mechanism measuring Africa's governance quality. As a ranking mechanism that encompasses 93 indicators, it is commended for being a wide-ranging collection of data on African governance. Although its quantitative methodology is clearly explained, there is a lack of theoretical articulation as to why the conceptual indicators that are used in the measurements have been included. This paper embeds the conceptual indicators used into theoretical frameworks in order to inform the relationship between the variables used and their impact on governance. Rather than imposing a preconceived theory on the data, this paper seeks to strengthen the IIAG's methodology by using grounded theory's principles to explain the rationale for including the indicators in measuring governance. The conclusion reached is that the reasoning for the selection of the indicators used for representing governance should be theoretically defended because their relationship with governance is not selfexplanatory.

  • Enforcement of foreign arbitral awards: a London perspective
    • Authors: Lughaidh Kerin, Anthony Cullen
      Pages: 388 - 398
      Abstract: The virtues of international arbitration are well-known. However, without the ability to enforce foreign arbitral awards, in the event of a party to arbitration failing, refusing or otherwise not honouring the award, international arbitration becomes a paper tiger. This is why the possibility of enforcement pursuant to the 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards is of cardinal importance. Mindful of the UK's treaty obligations under the New York Convention, this paper focuses on the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards from a London perspective. It will do so for two reasons: London has long standing and hard won reputation as one of the truly global centres of international arbitration. It is also recognised as a bellwether for international finance. In light of such recognition, this paper will examine the approach adopted by the English judiciary to international arbitration awards and ultimately their enforcement or otherwise in the courts of England and Wales.
