FIRST: THE NATIONAL IDENTITY, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE AXIS

This theme addresses the challenges and aspirations of hosting the World Cup, which will bring together different cultural backgrounds of different nationalities in Qatar while preserving the cultural identity and social values of Qatari society.

Within this axis, researchers are invited to submit papers/posters related to the following topics:

  • Understanding behaviors that may occur because of a lack of understanding of the “other” and its culture.
  • Issues of social security and the safety of hosts. (Fans interact with their teams in different ways depending on their culture.)
  • Choose cultural performances that reflect Qatar’s local and heritage cultural identity to mirror Qatar’s cultural aspects.
  • Opinions of the Qatari people about hosting the World Cup.
  • The history and culture of Qatar through the architectural designs of stadiums.
