The Doha International Family Institute (DIFI), a member of Qatar Foundation for education, science and community Development, in collaboration with Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs, held a Seminar entitled The Qatari Family: Strength and Challenges at Qatar National Convention Center on the 16 – 17 Jan 2018.
The seminar discussed the findings of a study on Qatari Families: Strengths and Challenges, a part of a larger, DIFI research project on Arab Family Strengths in Qatar, Jordan and Tunisia. The purpose of this research is to identify the factors that are associated with strong, Arab families, the challenges they face, and how they rely on their strengths as individuals, families, members of communities, and the wisdom of their cultural and religious beliefs to meet these many challenges.
The seminar included four panels: Marital Relationships, Parenting, Culture, and Financial Aspects. The event provided a platform for Qatar’s policymakers, practitioners, researchers, service providers, and civil society to discuss the most important challenges facing Qatari families and propose recommendations to strengthen Qatari families.
