  • Does What You Study Matter? Comparison of Career Aspirations Between Female Students in Arts and Science Streams in the UAE's Higher Educational Institutions

  • For Love, Money and Status, or Personal Growth? A Survey of Young Emirati Women’s Educational Aspirations

     View Summary

    The United Arab Emirates has been in the spotlight in recent years in light of its rapid growth and development. A key area of interest is the expansion of education, especially higher education for women, which has witnessed enormous growth in the last decade. However, despite the rapid increase in female higher education enrollment, women’s labor participation remains low, leading to questions on why highly educated young women are not in employment. This study investigates the incongruence between the growth of female attainment of higher education and women’s career inactivity over the last decades. To explore this mismatch, the study examines Emirati women’s perception of the role of higher education, analyzed through examining their educational and career aspirations and the correlations between these two. The study finds that for Emirati women, education is not always a means to an end, but simply the end itself. For some women, education is related to supplementing personal growth and contentment. The findings suggest that Emirati women aspire to further their education, especially through earning doctorate degrees. However, they do not necessarily connect their education to their intended future occupation. The findings provide an alternative explanation of the disconnect between women’s educational outcomes and labor market participation and provide insight into Emirati women’s choice to remain unemployed.

  • 中東湾岸諸国における大学の機能とジェンダー-アラブ首長国連邦を事例に-

    2018  

     View Summary

    本研究は、男性を上回る女性の高学歴化が堅調な中東湾岸諸国、中でもアラブ首長国連邦(United Arab Emirates:以下UAE)に焦点を当て、UAE人の進学動機と卒業後のキャリア展望について調査・分析した。分析には湾岸諸国籍の若者の教育とキャリアに関する意識を調査する目的で行われたアンケートとインタビュー調査データを用いた。分析結果、男性と比較して女性の方が高学歴志向を有しており、文系理系の差も確認されなかった。また、学歴に囚われない将来展望が確認されたインタビューデータから特に女性の意識において教育と職業が「弱い結び」で関連しており、その背景にある中東湾岸諸国の特質な社会構造の影響が示唆された。
