Since its establishment on the 2nd of December 1971, the UAE has set a temporary constitution. It soon came to be recognised as a permanent constitution after the UAE federation established its stability and success as a nation committed to a moderate policy. The country made cultural contributions and achieved huge accomplishments on the local, regional and international levels, ushering in an era of progress for the people of this federation. The UAE has thus become a model nation, becoming one of the most successful experiences of unification in modern history.
The Constitution explains the main rules of the political and constitutional organisation of the country. It demonstrates the main purpose of the establishment of the federation and its objectives at the local and regional levels. It also elaborates on the major social and economic pillars of the federation and stresses the public rights, responsibilities and freedoms. It explains federal authorities and federal legislation as well as details about other areas such as financial affairs of the federation, provisions for armed and security forces, and legislative, executive and international jurisdictions of the federation and member emirates
