THE ROOTS OF TOLERANCE IN UAE SOCIETY The location of the UAE continues to play a critical role in entrenching the val- ues of acceptance and openness. Pre-oil economic activities like fishing, raising livestock and pearling helped strengthen cooperation and solidarity among people. Mechanisms to settle disputes among traditional tribal society played an im- portant role in enhancing the values of tolerance.
