The German-Qatari Association was founded in 2011. It is an independent, non-governmental organization for the intercultural encouter between German and Qatari people.
Qatar and Germany have become close partners in recent years – in many fields and on different levels. On an economic level there is great mutual recognition. In the technological field as well as in tourism there are many positive developments. Education, science and sports became ideal fields for cooperation.
In spite of these positive dynamics in the German-Qatari cooperation there are many prejudices on a social level that can lead to misunderstandings and that can impede collaborations. Unfair reports and distorted facts in many cases led to oblique perception.
