At the forefront of reshaping security paradigms, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) exemplifies a pioneering approach towards sustainable security in the Middle East. This was stated by Dr. Daria Daniels Skodnik, senior international security and defense researcher and former deputy commander and dean of the NATO Defense College, who spoke before the Intersec 2024 Security Leaders Summit, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC) from January 16 to 18.

Challenges rooted in strategic rivalries between major powers on the global stage demand an integrated international response, a concept that is at the heart of the UAE’s approach. Sustainable security, which now encompasses multifaceted issues ranging from economic power to environmental threats, requires collaborative efforts to recognize the intricate interconnections between these factors.

Dr Daniels said: “The collaboration has been transformative in Middle East security, underscoring the power of diplomacy to overcome historical divisions and foster regional stability. The UAE’s innovative security strategy revolves around governance anticipatory, aligning policies, people, resources and technology, partnerships and multilateralism, the UAE seeks shared stability and prosperity, setting a precedent in the region.”

Overcoming challenges to resilience and deterrence requires economic diversity, strong infrastructure, effective governance, inclusive policies, and preparedness. Guided by the initiatives of the United Arab Emirates, the Middle East region redefines these principles, emphasizing alliances and agreements to reinforce collective security.

“Citizen participation is fundamental to future-ready security: a vigilant, educated and participatory society forms the basis of a responsive security infrastructure. Education, civic participation and inclusive governance collectively contribute to a resilient security framework capable to address future uncertainties. Dr. Daniels added.

The Intersec Security Leaders Summit brings together thought leaders and global experts with the aim of innovating security strategies over two days. Dr. Daniels will participate in a panel discussion on “Future-ready Security” alongside other international and regional security experts from the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT), the Ministry of the Interior of the United Arab Emirates, the Canadian Armed Forces, Saudi Aramco and Interpol. .

Grant Tuchten, portfolio director at Intersec organiser, Messe Frankfurt Middle East, said: “The UAE’s proactive stance towards sustainable security serves as a driving force in reshaping global security paradigms. The Intersec Security Leaders Summit, echoing this commitment, acts as a catalyst in advocating for new security approaches and defend sustainable security in various spheres”.
