Chatham House Hosts Talk on Qatar’s Foreign Policy

 

On Monday, the famed Chatham House think tank in London hosted an on-the-record talk on Qatar’s foreign policy featuring HE Lolwah R.M. Al Khater, Spokesperson for the Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Dr. Abdullah Baabood, the former Director of the Gulf Studies Center at Qatar University. The event focused on Qatar’s foreign policy as a regional moderator and leader during the Arab Spring and into the current illegal blockade.

Lowlah R.M. Al Khater and Dr. Abdullah Baabood discussed the failure of many Arab governments to respond constructively to the Arab Spring. Other participants focused on misconceptions about Qatar’s relationships with Islamism and the Muslim Brotherhood in particular.

Audience questions varied, but many regarded Qatar’s relationships with its neighbors in the wake of the illegal blockade and Jamal Khashoggi crisis, as well as the future of the GCC and Yemen.
