The State of Qatar’s Policies on International Cooperation and Social Work (ARABIC)

نشرت 12 ديسمبر 2017
2017.23.11. The objective of this conference was to show the efforts made by Qatar’s government on international cooperation, the culture of peace and the rejection of violence. The event was presented by the General Director of Casa Árabe, Pedro Martínez-Avial, and included interventions by Tariq Al-Ansari, an ambassador and the Director of the Department of International Cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Amal Al-Mannai, CEO of the Qatar Foundation for Social Work. This conference is an attempt to demonstrate the efforts made by the State of Qatar in the field of international cooperation as an important part of its foreign policy, to pass the culture of peace on amongst today’s generations and prepare responsible leaders for the future on dialogue and the rejection of violence. Therefore, the leaders of the State of Qatar have attempted to play an active role in strengthening their position in the political, development and social arenas. These efforts are framed within the strategy of international cooperation led by Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs as part of the National Vision for Qatar of 2030 which seeks to promote a global association for the creation of safe, peaceful societies headed by institutions which are able to protect stability and serve the different parties in society, with the goal of achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals based on the principles agreed to in the Millennium Declaration, along with the State of Qatar’s social responsibility in terms of humanitarian aid. The scope of action of Qatar’s Foundation for Social Work is social work at the local, regional and international levels. To do so, it has designed policies and strategies for social action, thereby allowing it to consolidate prior achievements, create effective alliances, strengthen the bonds of cooperation and build bridges for coordination with the proper governmental entities, as well as with the most important public and private institutions worldwide, because it wishes to become a role model in the field of social work. This foundation is of a consultative nature on the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

  • Fortieth International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (ARABIC)Show video

    Fortieth International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (ARABIC)

    2017.29.11. Casa Árabe and the Diplomatic Mission of Palestine in Spain organized this conference, given by Ayman Odeh, a member of the Knesset and the head of the Joint List. It was presented by Mussa Amer Odeh, the Ambassador of Palestine in Spain, and Pedro Martínez-Avial, the General Director of Casa Árabe. Since 1977, on November 29 of each year, the UN commemorates the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The date was selected because of its importance to the Palestinian people, given that three decades earlier, or in other words on that same date in 1947, the United Nations General Assembly enacted Resolution 181, which later came to be known as the “Partition Resolution,” in which the creation of a “Jewish State” and an “Arab State” in Palestine were stipulated, with Jerusalem as an international city. Of the two States foreseen in that resolution, up to now only one has been created: Israel. In a year when the Balfour Declaration has turned one century old, the Nakba occurred seven decades ago, and the Six-Day War took place fifty years back, this anniversary is allowing the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the matter of Palestine has not yet been resolved. Ayman Odeh (Haifa, 1975) is an attorney and politician, as well as member of the Israeli Parliament, or Knesset and the head of the Joint List, a political alliance of four parties dominated by the Arabs: Hadash, Balad, the United Arab List and Ta’al. Odeh, who identifies as a Socialist, joined Hadash and represented it in the Municipal Government of Haifa from 1998 to 2005, before becoming the party’s Secretary General in 2006. Analysts attribute to charismatic Odeh the fact that a more moderate, pragmatic face has been placed on the Arab political union. Odeh was elected to the twentieth Knesset, along with another 12 candidates from the Joint List.

  • Women’s Economic Empowerment in MENA CountriesShow video

    Women’s Economic Empowerment in MENA Countries

    2017.28.12. Casa Árabe hosted the presentation of this report published by the OECD, analyzing the impact of legal frameworks on the economic empowerment of women in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia. Casa Árabe the Spanish International Cooperation and Development Agency (AECID) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) are presenting the report “The Economic Empowerment of Women in a Selection of MENA Countries: The impact of the legal frameworks on Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia,” published last October by the OECD. In the MENA region, women account for more than half of the available labor force. Their level of education is constantly increasing, and they aspire to play a more active role in their countries’ economies. However, rates of women’s participation in the labor market and business remain at some of the lowest levels in the world. The report analyzes how the current legal frameworks in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia are impacting women in different ways when they take part in economic life, whether as employees or businesspeople. It is based on a comparative analysis of the legislation in these countries. The report acknowledges the important advancements that have taken place in recent years in certain Arab countries, especially after the uprisings of 2011, with the implementation of constitutional and institutional reforms and a strengthening of women’s status. Despite these changes, ensuring enough opportunities for women is still a challenge in the six countries analyzed. The report suggests that the current discriminatory situation is a result of the convergence of a series of factors: the existence of certain still discriminatory laws against women, contradictions between different legal frameworks, a lack of any mechanisms for their implementation and a range of barriers which women face in gaining access to justice. It recommends dealing with these challenges through policies aimed at helping live up to the potential that these women hold within, while promoting inclusive growth, competitiveness and social development. The results of the report will be presented by the report’s strategic director, Carlos Conde, coordinator of the MENA-OECD Governance Program, and Luis Tejada, Director of the AECID.

    Voices from Post-Revolutionary Egypt (ENG)

    2017.13.11. Virginia Pisano, a researcher who specializes in contemporary cultural movements in the Arab world and Egyptian journalist Lina Attalah took part in this round table discussion. The event was moderated by Leila Nachawati, a professor of Communication at the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid. The generation gap in Arab countries became apparent during the uprisings of 2011. The cultural expressions by youths in the streets, from Tunis to Sanaa and Manama, made creativity a political virtue for moving forward in terms of freedom of expression and other individual liberties. Graffiti, street theater, slogans and new compositions by urban troubadours demonstrated a dynamic power in 2011 that surprised not only their parents, but also youths themselves. Six years after the uprising in Tahrir Square, now is a good time to perform a review of the legacy, innovation and portrayal of Arab cultures and reflect upon these events. Virginia Pisano (Milan, 1983) has a degree in History from the Sorbonne (Paris) and in Middle East Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. She has worked for various cultural organizations as an art project coordinator, focusing on the Arab world and the Mediterranean space, including the Medinea network at the Festival of Aix, the AlefBa project by the Royaumont Foundation and the cultural translation project Transeuropéennes. Along with her research and cultural management activities, Virginia Pisano is currently working towards a career in radio documentary production and is specializing in today’s Egyptian music. Lina Attalah is a journalist and well-known figure in the Egyptian media. Editor of the website Mada Masr, she was formerly an editor for the Egypt Independent. Attalah studied journalism at the American University of Cairo and has worked on many different projects based on research using multimedia outputs. She has written for the English language version of Al-Masry Al-Youm, Reuters, the Cairo Times, the Daily Star and the Christian Science Monitor. She worked as a radio producer and campaign coordinator for the BBC World Service in 2005. She is active in the fight against restricting honest journalism and has more than 42 million followers on Twitter. More info: http://en.casaarabe.es/event/voices-from-post-revolutionary-egypt
