How do you see the freedom of the press in Qatar?




In light of the evolution underway in the State of Qatar at all levels and the keenness of the leadership of the State of Qatar to improve and develop the political, economic, judicial and punitive the country’s political, economic, judicial and its penal system in accordance with Human Rights standards, The National Human Rights Committee was established in accordance with Law No. (38) for the year 2002 and re-organized in accordance with law no. (17) for the year 2010.

The NHRC has started functioning  on November 2003 with the objective set in the law establishing it of consolidating and protecting Human Rights and public freedoms in the state at the levels of thought and practice and ensuring respect of all the social, cultural, political, civil and legal rights.  The NHRC also seeks Qatar’s commitment to international and Arab charters and agreements on Human Rights and follows up on developments in national legislation relating to Human Rights to ensure complying with international agreements and measures to which Qatar was committed.

The NHRC has since adopted a number of relative programs and activities in Qatar in cooperation with a number of ministries and government agencies as well as civil society organizations on the national, regional and international levels together with related United Nations Organizations.

Change is always needed to improve the Human Rights situation through careful programs and strategies taking into consideration that change is a gradual process and needs to be carried out in the context of short-term, mid-term and long-term phases to ensure continuity of the process.

A strategic vision has therefore become an urgent  necessity that should  focus on  a number of considerations and objectives.

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES:

  • Awareness and education on human rights for the various parties and groups;
  • Providing protection, assistance and empowerment to victims of violations of human rights
  • Regional and international cooperation in the field of human rights;
  • Institutional capacity-building;
  • Urging the state to accede to international conventions and develop national legislation;
  • Promotion and development of human rights;
  • Human Rights education.
