Doha International Family Institute (DIFI) will hold its second annual Family Policy Forum from tomorrow. The two-day event aims to provide a platform for discussion and debate surrounding policy issues related to the Arab family, and help identify priorities for policy makers in the region. 
The forum, titled ‘Ten Years Since the Issuance of Family Law in Qatar: Experiences and Aspirations’, will be held in partnership with the Legal and Judicial Studies Centre of the Ministry of Justice, the Faculty of Law at Qatar University, the Qatar Lawyers Association, and Qatar Social Work.
Noor al-Malki al-Jehani, executive director, DIFI, said, “The Issuance of Family Law in Qatar in 2006 is considered one of the most important legislative achievements related to the family in the past 10 years, and this forum is the first event to be held to review and discuss the practical experiences of the law’s application by experts and specialists. We sincerely appreciate our partners and thank them for their co-operation, and look forward to its outcomes and recommendations which will contribute to strengthening the family.” 
The forum will discuss topics such as ‘the historical, social and legislative context for the issuance of family law in Qatar and its role in supporting family policies’; ‘family law: substantive and procedural provisions between legislation and societal reality’; ‘the perspective of lawyers on family law and its applications in the courts’; ‘cases of reconciliation in family disputes and the role of civil society’; ‘judicial protection of the family: applications from the Qatari courts’.
