Description


Organisation

The German-Qatari Association was founded in 2011 and is an independent organization for the intercultural encounter between the German and Qatari people.

The Emirate Qatar and the Federal Republic of Germany are countries that first glance could not be more different regarding size, number of people, energy resources, history and culture. Nevertheless the bilateral connections are growing constantly.

Qatar became one of the most important economic partner of Germany in the recent years. On the economic level there is a very great mutual recognition. In the economic and technological field as well as in tourism there are a lot of positive developments. Germany is significantly involved into the rapid structural development of Qatar and accomplishes an important contribution for the nation-building of the dynamic growing wealthy State of Qatar. Qatar on the other hand is attracting international attention as an exemplary developer in many aspects and therefore is propulsive for the whole Gulf region.

In spite of this positive dynamics in the German-Qatari cooperation there are many prejudices on the social and cultural level and on both sides that can lead to misunderstandings and that can impede collaborations.

That is why the German-Qatari Association wants to promote understanding, so that people of both countries get to know each other, we seek to reduce prejudices and clichés, to enable friendships and trust on both sides.

Understanding is based on knowledge and information, therefore it is our aim to close gaps of knowledge about „the other“ and to build a counterpart to single-sided media information by a more differentiated point of views.
