30 november – 7 december 2019
The Gulf state of Qatar has reached a significant global profile in the recents years. Once one of the poorest Gulf States, Qatar is now one of the richest countries in the region and the world’s larger exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The WiP Study Mission project, held by eastwest European Institite, will give participants the unique opportunity to interact with Qatar’s ruling class. By the end of the program, participants will have gained a deeper understanding of the motivations and consequences of the embargo imposed on Qatar. The embargo came after Qatar did not comply with the other nations’ requests, among which cutting all ties with Iran, with whom Qatar shared the world’s largest LNG field, and stop all trade unauthorised by U.S. sanctions.
They also will try to understand how Qatar’s political tie with Iran has determined the blockade imposed by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt in 2017 as well as the rational behind the decision to leave OPEC.
The structure of the WiP Study Doha is divided into three parts, as well as the other WiP projects.
