New Global Index Names UAE as Safest Country
People feel safer while walking at night in the UAE than anywhere else in the world, an international survey has found.
According to Gallup’s Global Law and Order 2021 report, the Emirates scored 95% when it came to feeling safe about walking alone at night. Norway was second on the index, with 93%. In the highest law and order index, the Emirates came second with a score of 93 points. Norway was ranked as the top country with 94 points.
“If a woman wanders alone at any hour of the day or night without fear, know that she is in the Emirates,” tweeted Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai. In October, Georgetown University released its Women, Peace and Security Index and ranked the UAE the safest country for women to walk at night.
The index showed 98.5% of women said they felt safe while walking alone in their neighborhoods at night. Singapore came second at 96.9%. Earlier this year, a separate survey by Numbeo named Abu Dhabi as the safest city in the world, with Dubai and Sharjah also in the top 10.
