The main objective of this article is to explore empirically the attitudes of civil service leaders in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) towards the policy of Emaratisation of posts in the UAE civil service. Emaratisation refers to the UAE government’s policy to localise posts and replace expatriate manpower with national personnel. The article examines the Emaratisation policy in the light of relevant studies and with reference to its major components. It presents and draws conclusions from the responses of civil service leaders to a questionnaire which addressed key dimensions of the policy.
