This book aims to significantly contribute to Qatar’s capacity building of its local nationals through its heavy investment and continuous reforms in education, training and labor market. More specifically, the objective of this book is to develop a process to identify and build the most significant capabilities required by Qatari nationals to achieve Qatar’s Vision 2030. In turn, it is excepted that this will help Qatar to develop and orient its future human capital in line with its vision of 2030.

This book is a flagship initiative to document the current settings of Qatar’s human development, mainly education, labour market and human resources and its affects, positively or negatively, on the capacity building of Qatar’s nation to lead and accomplish its vision of 2030. The book therefore puts together, for the first time, original and cutting-edge contributions aimed at illuminating and charting new directions for researching, teaching and understanding of this subject matter.
