Doha Forum: Youth Edition

Saturday 24 November 2018, 10.00AM – 01.00PM Education City Student Center, Al Huqoul St, Doha, Qatar
Organised by QatarDebate

The Doha Forum: Youth Edition is one of the most important events in QatarDebate’s 2018 calendar, as it focuses on the importance of dialogue in addressing contemporary issues and current challenges. It will consist of two panel discussions in both Arabic and English, in which young people from various backgrounds and cultures will discuss currently-trending topics and issues from around the world.

The Arabic panel discussion at the Doha Forum: Youth Edition will focus on the theme of changing societies, including immigration and the concept of populist movements all over the world. It will address the topic ‘Mass immigration is the solution, not the problem.’ The English panel discussion will approach the theme of fake news and address the topic ‘The role of the media in a post-truth era.’ Among the areas it will explore is the capacity of fake news to polarize society, particularly during political events, and to affect international relations and polarize different groups within a nation.

This event is organized in collaboration between the Doha forum and Qatar Debate Center.
