Minister of State HE Dr Hamad bin Abdulaziz al Kuwari will be delivering his first public lecture in his capacity as Georgetown University in Qatar’s (GU-Q) Ambassador in Residence at a Dialogue Series lecture hosted by the university’s Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS), on November 27, Wednesday, at 6pm.
The talk, titled ‘The Global Majlis: My Experience with International Organizations’, will feature Dr Kuwari’s insights gained from his extensive experience as a career diplomat. He will also take part in a question and answer session with students, faculty, staff and members of the Doha community in attendance.
Director of CIRS Dr Mehran Kamrava stressed the importance of creating public platforms for dialogue and engagement with leading public figures in Qatar, saying: “As a research centre, bringing together leading thinkers, scholars, practitioners and the public is a key pillar of the work we do at CIRS. We look forward to hosting Dr Kuwari and listening to his views on the workings of real-world diplomacy.”
Known for his advocacy in protecting Qatar’s cultural heritage and candidacy in the 2017 election of the Director-General of UNESCO, Dr Kuwari says inspiring new generations of community leaders is required for positive sustainable change. “Good public diplomacy isn’t an abstract concept. It requires building relationships through substantive and continuing dialogue with the community, which is why I look forward to an engaging conversation at CIRS,” said Dr Kuwari.
Prior to his current role at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr Kuwari served as the Minister of Culture, Arts and Heritage of Qatar from 2008 until 2016. His extensive resume as an ambassador of Qatar includes service in many countries including France and the US, as well as with the UN.
Dr Kuwari was appointed GU-Q’s first Ambassador in Residence earlier this year. The programme connects prominent figures from the public sector in Qatar to GU-Q’s community and aims to establish avenues of ongoing collaboration with innovative thinkers and sector leaders to further GU-Q’s academic, research and service efforts.
