Emirati family best across Arab world, study says

08/15/2009 10:30 PM | WAM

Abu Dhabi: An Arab media study has shown that the Emirati family is the best across the Arab world.

Dr Lubna Mohammad Al Kenani, a researcher, stated in her PhD thesis at Cairo University, that the findings of the survey have shown the Emirati family "is the best family in the Arab world in terms of sticking to religious and social norms and allegiance", adding that the government is also keen on providing welfare to its citizens".

In the light of family relations, she continued, the survey shows the Emirati family tops with 62 per cent, followed by the Tunisian family with 54.9 per cent.

Dr Lubna said this culture is reflected in Emirati TV serials, which portray the strength of relations among UAE family members, sticking to religious and social values, as well as care given by the community to women.

She reiterated that the exemplary model of the Emirati family is the central theme of 85.2 per cent of Emirati TV serials compared with 69.2 per cent of Egyptian TV serials, 67.6 per cent of Syrian TV serials and 63.8 per cent of Tunisian TV serials.

Dr Lubna compared the women portrayed in TV serials with actual relaity and observed that "Emirati weman's occupational status on the ground is better compared to what is being shown on TV".

On women taking care of their families in the UAE, Dr Lubna said the UAE government offered support to women, particularly to the divorced, widows and orphans. They have been given farms with seeds, fertilisers, workers and free marketing of their products through the agricultural shopping centres spread across the country.

She added that this experience is unprecedented, hoping that other Arab countries would follow suit. Dr Lubna also underlined that UAE institutions strive to make the UAE family less exposed to socio-economic, educational, health and legal problems.
