Project Summary

My doctoral research examines the investment strategies of Qatar, with a particular focus on Qatar’s politics, economics, and social systems. The study will provide a comparative analysis of Qatar’s investments in different countries and sectors, considering the motivations behind these investments, the selected countries and sectors, and the impact on both Qatar and the recipient countries. By conducting in-depth case studies and analysing the perceptions of relevant stakeholders, this research aims to contribute to a better understanding of the complex dynamics of Qatar’s investment strategies.
