SDG 16: PEACE, JUSTICE AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS

Introduction

Sustainable Development Goal16(SDG1) is about to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

Conflict, insecurity, weak institutions and limited access to justice continue to pose a serious threat to sustainable development.

The UAE government upholds a ‘Safe Public and Fair Judiciary’ as one of the cornerstones of Vision 2021. The UAE’s commitment to the rule of law has maintained order, eradicated violence, and contributed to a sense of justice and security for UAE nationals and residents alike. The Ministry of Interior (MOI) continuously works on establishing and strengthening public institutions to ensure the UAE remains amongst the safest and most secure countries to live in by 2021. MOI’s commitment is widely acknowledged with the UAE reaching 90% in the SDG Index indicator related to people feeling safe walking alone at night.

The Canadian University Dubai (CUD) has a strong commitment to supporting these sustainable goals, so the university has compiled information and built a series of Sustainability reports containing the university's efforts with respect to each of the 17 different goals.

Inclusive governance requires the involvement of diverse actors, and consideration for customary laws and other non-state forms of rule- making at global to local scales. Many national laws governing forests and land use favor political elite, large-scale industry actors and international trade.

CUD plays a major role in achieving goal 16 with the alignment of the government to achieve a sustainable society according to 2030 vision, and promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all. Besides, it assures the participation in local, regional and national government to all.

The University Appeal procedure for students is based on the following principles:

  • Procedures and processes employed to resolve an Appeal are fair and must be seen to be fair

  • Confidentiality must be respected for all parties concerned, except when there is a legal requirement to divulge information

  • All staff involved in the resolution of an Appeal must act with impartiality and objectivity throughout and ensure that all conclusions drawn are based on a fair review of all the facts and opinions available

  • Appeals are handled in a timely manner with clear outcomes

  • After the review, the committee may decide to revise the grade - up or down.

An informal resolution procedure also exists as part of the University Appeals process in conjunction with the procedure for a formal appeal of an academic decision. The University strongly encourages a student to first make an attempt at an informal resolution of an issue with his/her professor before making a Formal Appeal.

If the student is dissatisfied with the outcome of an initial informal meeting with his/her professor, the formal process may then be initiated without prejudice.

The Office of the Registrar is responsible for administering the appeals process and on receipt of an Appeal against a grade or mark. The Registrar will convene an appeals Committee consisting of at least three persons.

This Committee will consist of the Registrar who will be the Chair, a non-academic member responsible for safeguarding the interests of the student and a subject matter expert who is not the Academic who awarded the original grade or mark.

The Committee may call upon the student or Professor concerned if necessary.

Robotics at CUD

Robotics is an active area of interest for many CUD students and the CUD Robotics Club, established in Fall 2015, brings together students from across the University to work together to create functioning robots.

Participation in the club is a fun way to develop new skills and explore the future of technology, while meeting other students with similar interests. Members also have the opportunity to take part in external events and competitions, in the UAE and wider region.

The Robotics Club operates under three main categories.

    1. Mechanical: This involves working on building a robot from scratch; transforming the imagined robot design into a real robot.

    2. Electronics: This involves creating the connection between the different robot parts through various boards, and then connecting to an active object that can be read by a PC or be controlled by a wired or wireless controller.

    3. Software: This involves writing codes to make the robots sensor active and readable, and to give commands that make the robot functionally work.

  • Our Mission

The purpose of the CUD Robotics Club is to empower ambitious students with resources, to enable them to build robots for fun and competitive purposes; to remove barriers from entry into robotics, creating a path to success.

  • Our Vision

We aim to bring together members from all majors of the University – with different perspectives we will be able to create a community that knows about robots and make it enjoyable at the same time.

Canadian University Dubai welcomed Mr. Nathan Tek, a regional spokesperson for the US State Department, who facilitated a conversation on "Strategic Communications."

Organized by Dr. Mohammed Abuhannoud, Assistant Professor, Department of Communication, the event gave students and faculty the opportunity to hear Mr. Tek speak about his professional experience in the field of communications.

Mr. Tek outlined his role as an authorized Regional Spokesman for the United States government in the UAE. His function is to represent United States government foreign policy. Referencing recent developments in the Middle East, he explained how he spends a considerable amount of time addressing public opinion here and explaining various issues concerning the role of the US in the Middle East and further afield. He stressed the importance of building bridges between Middle Eastern countries and the United States. He also spends time in other countries in the Middle East training US diplomatic personnel in communication strategies and social media.

Nasif Kayed, founder and CEO of “The Arab Culturalist,” gave an amusing and inspiring talk on Arab Culture to an audience at CUD. Nasif is a business consult and a dynamic motivational speaker and facilitator, providing Cultural Intelligence workshops and expert advice on Arab and Emirati culture.

Nasif spoke of the many misconceptions concerning Arab culture citing, as examples, impressions of the various forms of dress of both man and women and a commonly held opinion that all Arabs were rich because of oil. In fact, of all the Muslim countries in the world, only a small proportion has a viable oil industry. He encouraged his audience to be endlessly curious and not be afraid to ask awkward questions. “There is no harm in asking for clarification.”

Nasif also related the history of Dubai starting from its early days as the centre of the world’s pearl industry and its reputation for spices and the manufacture of fine fabrics which they then traded far and wide. He explained how Dubai had turned itself into a trading hub. Our spices are the origin of many modern-day medicines. Now Dubai has one of the largest Airports in the World and Jebel Ali Port is one of the busiest in the World.

The student internship may be a required part of the program curriculum. Whenever it is part of the program, the purpose of an internship is to provide Canadian University Dubai students with an opportunity to have professional work experience in a setting related to the student's major, program objectives, and career goals. An internship is a way for students to gain practical, on the-job experience in business, industry, or governmental agencies. Canadian University Dubai considers student internships as an important bridge between students and the careers that they are studying to enter. Simultaneously, an internship introduces public and private organizations to students that might fit their field of interest, skills, and training for possible future placement.

Place of Internship

The internship place will be approved by Canadian University Dubai Internship Office so that it matches the area of specialization of the internee and meets the program’s internship objectives and requirements.

In the case of students who are already working in an organization, the place of internship is decided based on the following features:

    • If the current work and job specification coincide with the intern’s area of specialization, then the current place of employment will be chosen for the internship, and the employer in charge of the internee will have to function as the field supervisor; he or she will need to supervise a well-defined internship project to ensure that the internee not only applies the concepts learned but also that the work place benefits from the internee’s project.

    • If the current work and job specification do not match the internee’s area of specialization, then the internee should switch to an alternative department in the same firm or transfer to another firm which offers appropriate internship opportunity matching the area of specialization, chosen by the Internship Office.

    • It is the Internship Office’s responsibility to place students according to Canadian University Dubai’s internship regulations. Students should refer to the Internship Manual available at the Student Services office for more information.
