QNRF and the Doha International Family Institute (DIFI), have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding and announced their collaboration for the launch of a new QNRF-DIFI joint-funded research grant focused on the Arab family.
Called “Osra”, which means family in Arabic, it will assist in the development of evidence-based policies and programs to promote the well-being of the Arab family by looking at marriage and family structure, parenting, family-work balance and family laws and practices across the region.
Dr Abdul Sattar Al-Taie, Executive Director at QNRF said “We are delighted to collaborate with DIFI on this new research program since the Osra grant addresses an area that has, in a large part, been left unexplored in the Arab region”.
