There's a very interesting article in The Economist this weekend about how the UAE tries to stifle dissidence (i.e., discussion) by deporting people - even to countries they have no link to.

http://www.economist.com/node/21559385

This may not be directly relevant to teachers in the UAE, or those considering a position here, but it does serve as a reminder to KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT as you pocket those petro-dirhams!

Otherwise, you might be 'deported' to ... Albania?
