AQF Views & Voices: Policy & Practice

Welcome to the Al Qasimi Foundation’s Policy & Practice Blog

The Policy & Practice blog highlights works and discussions that impact our community, inform policy decisions and best practices, and affect the social, cultural, and economic development of our emirate, the UAE, Gulf region, and beyond. Below you will find our blog posts, op-eds, and reviews.

In addition to discussing the Foundation’s own research findings, best practices, and priority areas, we welcome contributions from local and international academics, practitioners, policy makers, as well as our peer organizations and partners.
