This house believes that Muslims are failing to combat extremism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overwhelming majority at the latest Doha Debate has criticised Muslims around the world for failing to combat extremism. Ed Husain, a British campaigner against fundamentalism, challenged the many Muslims who travel each year to Mecca to stand up to extremism 'right there'; claiming 'Saudi Arabia has totally demolished our heritage in Mecca and Medina.' Such public criticism of the Saudi Kingdom -- as well as Muslims in general -- is extremely rare in the Middle East. During the early 1990s Husain was a recruiter to fundamentalist groups at university campuses in the UK. Now deputy director of The Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism think tank, he insisted, "Muslims have to change their mindset of blaming others or we will be the laughing stock of the world." The motion was supported by US human rights lawyer Arsalan Iftikhar, who criticised Muslims for the mass demonstrations over cartoons in Denmark and the comparative silence over sectarian violence in Iraq. Speaking against the motion, Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, claimed the era of extremism was over. Alongside her, Moez Masoud, a Muslim 'televangelist' watched by millions in the region, accused the media of ignoring Muslim calls for tolerance

Sustaining the Qatar National Research Fund by Gary Cecchine( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Established in 2006 by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) awards research grants to recipients, from undergraduate to professional, in a wide range of disciplines in Qatar and abroad. In view of recent developments, most notably the passing of Decree-Law No. (24) of 2008, which promises to expand the QNRF⁰́₉s mandate dramatically when it is implemented, RAND was asked to investigate what might be needed to ensure the QNRF⁰́₉s sustainability in the decades to come. This report presents the results of that investigation. A systematic analysis of the issue indicated that the QNRF will need to (1) make measurable progress toward achieving its core mission of fostering a research culture in Qatar and (2) evolve its governance structure and related infrastructure to accommodate its new responsibilities. The report assesses how well the QNRF has done to date in its efforts and presents recommendations for future activities to continue pursuing these parallel objectives. The QNRF has made progress in evolving its infrastructure as originally envisioned, but challenges remain. The former QNRF acting director has been named the permanent director, but a governing board has not yet been established. In addition, the funding model, organizational structure, and staffing levels, which are geared toward investigator-driven research in clearly defined fields, would have to be modified to respond to the projected expansion of the QNRF⁰́₉s roles and responsibilities called for in the new legislation
This house believes that Arab women should have full equality with men( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few weeks ago, women in Kuwait finally caught up to their counterparts in Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and much of the rest of the Arab world, when they were given the right to vote and run for office, the result of a 35-23 vote in parliament. Kuwaiti women won the right, however, under the condition that they abide by Islamic law. What limits will such a condition, placed by Islamic lawmakers who had previously succeeded in blocking the vote, put on the women's newly earned right to participate in the decision-making of their country? According to some fundamentalist Muslim teaching, women in Islam are not allowed the right to hold positions of political leadership. They are, however, allowed the right to divorce, inherit property, be educated and conduct business. Should Arab women enjoy equal status with men? Does equality necessarily mean the same rights? This Wednesday, June 1, four distinguished speakers will explore these and related arguments in the seventh in the series of Doha Debates, presented by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. Chaired by former BBC presenter Tim Sebastian, the Doha Debates revolve around a motion presented to a live audience -- in this case, 'This House believes that Arab women should have equality with men.' Two speakers argue for the motion and two speak against it. Sebastian draws out the speakers, challenging their positions, and then opens the debate to questions from the audience. Finally the audience votes to accept or reject the motion, based on the merits of the arguments the speakers have made. Speaking in favor of the motion will be Dr. Tareq Al-Suwaidan, a Kuwaiti presenter of numerous Islamic programs on local and satellite television. He will be joined by Toujan Faisal, the first woman elected into the Jordanian parliament. Speaking against the motion will be Sheikh Jihad Brown, an Islamic scholar and a consultant for various Islamic projects in the region. He will be joined by Khola Hassan, an author who has been outspoken on the position of women in Islam
Recommended research priorities for the Qatar Foundation's Environment and Energy Research Institute by Rand Corporation( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Qatar⁰́₉s leadership has created a vision of sustainable development for the country. The Qatar Foundation (QF) is moving this vision of sustainable development forward in part by establishing a national research institute that conducts and collaborates on applied research in energy, environment, and water issues, the Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute. This book recommends applied research priorities for the new institution and reports on a survey of related research institutions in the region. The authors identified 14 priority research topics that QF should consider for the institute: natural gas and petroleum production and processing, carbon capture and storage, solar-energy development, fuel cells, green building, smart grids, strategic energy planning, desalination, groundwater sustainability, water demand management, integrated water resource management, environmental characterization, and crosscutting environmental research. These topics address key challenges that Qatar⁰́₉s energy, water, and environment resources and industries face, and they are areas in which Qatar could be well positioned to pursue research. Through the survey, the authors also found that Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries have common resources and concerns about energy, water, and environment issues, and that GCC institutions are engaged in a range of research activities to address such concerns. The authors recommend that Qatar⁰́₉s institute take a multidisciplinary approach to research, and collaborate with other GCC institutions. It should also seek input from and involve the Qatar government to ensure that research priorities are aligned, resources allocated to energy and environment research reflect the institute⁰́₉s capabilities and needs, research findings reach their intended audience, and the institute and government agencies collaborate
