International, regional and local scientists to discuss challenges facing the Arab family

The Doha International Family Institute (DIFI) hosted an international seminar to discuss the various challenges, solutions and policy implications regarding the Arab family. The seminar, held in Doha on the 23rd of September, also launched the 11th Annual Arab Network for NGOs report, which details the role NGOs play in confronting the challenges facing the Arab family.

The Seminar provided scientific evidence-based research that sheds light on the changes impacting the Arab family as a result of modernity and globalisation. The research findings are aimed at helping create a solid base for the policy-making process.

A prominent group of International and regional experts, in addition to local NGOs, policymakers and researchers, addressed a number of relevant topics including, cultural challenges, violence against women and family separations.

The research findings subsequently revealed the current needs of today’s Arab family with regards to ensuring their positive contribution to the overall future growth of society.

Dr Wissam Al Othman, on behalf of Dr Fatma Al Kubaisy from Qatar, and Dr Ali Leila from Egypt explored Qatar’s social challenges. While other speakers including, Dr Amani Kandil from Egypt, Dr Kamel Mahanna from Lebanon and Dr Abdellatif Kaday from Morocco, discussed the concept of social challenges and the results of the annual report.
