Family Dynamics and Tribal Influences on Modern Dubai Culture

We are delighted to reschedule this talk which is the first in a series of subjects chosen in a survey of our group members. You will have the opportunity to find out more about the family values that underpin Emirati Culture, discuss and debate how these Tribal Influences affect modern Dubai and enjoy socialising and networking together with like minded people. Amal is passionate to share her knowledge so it will be an ideal chance to ask any question you choose, in order to explore this unique Culture. We look forward to seeing you.

    I am glad my friend and I didn't bail!! We were both very tired, but decided to push through. It was a great venue, presenter, and group. I look forward to the next one.

    Nice presentation. However, I was expecting something more in the line of the title (maybe more on a cultural perspective rather than a religious one) - how tribal influences have determined the family dynamics we have today in the UAE.

    • Amal

      Thank you for your comment. The questions that were asked focused on the religion. I would have welcomed any questions from you Sandra.
