1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The founder of the library, H.E. Shaikh Dr. Hasan Bin Mohamed Al-Thani ... has been able, in a period of 20 years, to collect about 85,000 titles in different subjects which some date back [to the] 15th century, the discovery of printing in Europe ... The Library was established in early 1979 when Sheikh Hassan took an initiative of collecting rare and famous European books and encyclopedias in different fields ... Today, this library is one of the most important research centres not only in the Gulf region but also in the Middle East. It contains about 85,000 invaluable books in Arabic and foreign languages, about 600 antique maps, charts and 2000 manuscripts"--P [8]

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

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 10 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 the Middle East would be better off with John McCain in the White House( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The latest Doha Debate has conclusively warned America that a victory by John McCain in the US Presidential election would further damage relations with the Middle East. Hafez al-Mirazi, the former host of Al-Jazeera's Arabic weekly television show From Washington said that just as President George W. Bush had made the Middle East "worse than it was eight years ago" so his "hawkish Republican mate" would do the same. In an opening statement that drew loud applause, Mr. al-Mirazi warned that Sarah Palin, McCain's running mate, was from the same warmongering mould as Dick Cheney, Bush"s vice-president, "who happens to be a quail hunter." Dr. Michael Signer, foreign policy adviser to Democratic Senator John Edwards' presidential campaign in 2007-2008 and a foreign policy expert, also attacked the motion and the dangers a McCain victory would present. Describing Barak Obama, the Democrat nominee, as "thoughtful and deliberate", he said such qualities were of paramount importance during the present troubled times. He said Senator Obama was an African-American who spent his formative years in Indonesia, a Muslim nation, and would be a president "who wants to understand and listen, rather than just talk." Danielle Pletka, Vice President for Foreign and Defence Policy Studies at the American Institute for Public Policy Research, supported the motion, suggesting that Senator McCain was the only Presidential candidate who would not "walk away" from Iraq, leaving the region to return to sectarian violence. Dr. Saad al-Ajmi, former Kuwaiti Minister for Information and Culture, said he supported the motion largely because he feared that Senator Obama would pull US troops out of Iraq prematurely
This house believes that Arab women should have full equality with men( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 10 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 )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qatar's 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 Qatar's 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 Qatar's 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 institute's capabilities and needs, research findings reach their intended audience, and the institute and government agencies collaborate
