Abstract

This research paper is intended to assist with the development of a National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for Qatar. The paper does this by summarising the main contextual factors in Qatar that might influence the development of an NQF; surveying international developments in relation to more than a 100 NQFs that have emerged or are the process of being created, and the main lessons to be learned, focusing in particular the NQF architecture of three small states - Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and Malta - two of which are situated in the Gulf Region. The paper concludes with a summary of the implications of the international research to the conditions of Qatar and the policy goals the Qatar Government have established in this area and key questions for upcoming in-country research and consultation.
