Who are you, Dubai?

United Arab Emirates, April of 2017.


Dubai is the most cosmopolitan city in the world with 91 per cent of population is foreign-born, according to World Migration Report. The total population of Dubai has grown by 1000% over the last 40 years alone. In 1975 the total population was 183,000 inhabitances, which increased in 2015 to about 2 million. This increase makes Dubai population one of the fastest growing in the world. In a related context, the guest workers  have profoundly contributed to this population growth since they constituted 91% of the total population.
