ECSSR library

The ECSSR (or the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research is the information gathering sector of the UAE government.  It is divided into three branches: Scientific Research Division, Community Services Division and Administrative Affairs Division.  Both the Scientific Research Division and the Community Service Division work independently to collect information about events happening throughout the world so that the Emirati leaders can evaluate what the impact will be on the UAE.  This division of the government was interesting because it demonstrates how the UAE constantly monitors world events to determine their impact on the country.
