This paper explains how the United Arab Emirates came into being and discusses the social and economic disenfranchisment of the Indian population there. It goes on to propose a research plan guided by broader questions concerning the private, professional and public spheres of the nation as they relate to ethnicity, religion and geopolitical orientation. It includes a literature review that attempts to engage a discourse on the complex array of intervening conditions both within and without the Emirates.
From the Paper:''This is a condition which has even in some instances yielded evidence of the repressive tactics to which the UAE will resort when faced with resistance. The untenable working conditions facing many Indian laborers have produced murmurings of worker discontent that are infrequently allowed in the Middle East. A regional culture of strong-armed and deeply centralized governance makes unionization, striking and a pursuit of worker rights at the labor class level frequently unlikely. However, the heightened level of industrialization and growth is changing things in the Emirates, where in 2007, "the Dubai police used force on 4,000-odd striking construction workers protesting against poor wages and living conditions. Most of them were Indians. Such protests in UAE are rare as strikes are banned and workers are not allowed to form unions." (Mahapatra, 1) The use of violent and repressive force against the striking Indian laborers underscores the odds which are facing Indian expatriates as a whole, with the Emirates only manifesting diversity at the most surface level.''
