The College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to invite you to attend The 7th Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference of the Gulf Studies Center at Qatar University The FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar: Looking into Global and Local Perspectives

The Gulf Studies Center, a part of the College of Arts and Sciences at Qatar University, is pleased to announce its plans to host on 19-20 September 2022 a two-day international conference to discuss Qatar’s experience in the organization of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Specific attention will be paid to the analysis of socio-cultural, economic and political sides of this process. The key outcome of the event will be the publication of a collective monograph that is aimed to become one of the main reference books for anyone who is interested in the story of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, adding a country specific focus to the current more general discourse on the phenomenon of the Middle Eastern football.

Consequently, as opposed to the majority of events discussing the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the conference will not be limited to the discussion of the technical/organizational dimensions or sports diplomacy only. Its main priority is to trigger comprehensive debates on the different aspects of the World Cup and its impacts on the hosting country, Middle Eastern region and the world. This annual international conference will bring together scholars, policy makers and students from a wide-range of disciplines to engage in a nuanced debate on the multifaceted impact of the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Qatari society and the region as a whole.
