Continuing a commitment to public engagement despite the pandemic, Qatar Foundation (QF) partner Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) has announced the launch of ‘The Virtual Hub for Global Dialogue: Engaging Communities, Finding Solutions’.
The initiative includes a multitude of online events, lectures and training opportunities that bring together experts, scholars, government leaders and industry professionals, to stimulate thinking and discussion around key issues defining the world today. The ‘Virtual Hub’ comprises five separate programmes, organised in partnership with GU-Q scholars, and through collaborations with Qatar-based and international organisations, including the Education Above All Foundation (EAA), Institute for the Study of Diplomacy (ISD) in Washington, DC, GU-Q Executive and Professional Education, the GU-Q Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS), and the GU-Q Indian Ocean Working Group. The dean of GU-Q, Dr Ahmad Dallal, said: “In an era of uncertainty, it is more important than ever that we come together to find innovative solutions to the challenges we are collectively facing.
This year, we are drawing together our knowledge networks digitally to continue the GU-Q tradition of providing a platform for critical engagement, and helping the community stay connected to expert analysis on global affairs.”
‘The Virtual Hub for Global Dialogue’ will include the FIFA World Cup 2022 Lecture Series, discussing the implications of staging one of the world’s largest sporting events on the social, political and economic development of Qatar and on regional and global affairs.
A lecture series launched in partnership with EAA will explore the importance of development co-operation as a tool for peace and sustainable development to address the challenges facing the achievement of the SDGs.
