3 grants for research on Arab family structure

Three research proposals designed to address emerging issues affecting the well-being of the Arab family have been awarded grants through OSRA, a programme launched by the Doha International Family Institute (DIFI) in collaboration with Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF).
OSRA, which means “family” in Arabic, is a DIFI-QNRF joint initiative that unites researchers to study the challenges currently facing Arab families across the region.
It is designed to encourage research that can be used to develop a knowledge base about the Arab family.
In this second cycle of the grant, DIFI and QNRF, a member of Qatar Foundation Research and Development, aim to encourage research that contributes to the development of evidence-based policies and programmes on families, marriage, parenting, parenthood and divorce.
The call for proposals, launched in December 2016, saw strong interest from both local and regional academic research institutions, with 17 proposals submitted as part of the competitive review process.
Priority was given to those proposals focused on researching the effects of wars and conflict on parent-child relationships within Arab families. The three awarded proposals came from the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, Qatar University and the American University of Beirut.
