Conference to highlight impact of Arab media on Arab families

April 7, 2010

The impact of Arab media on Arab families will be under the spotlight at a conference to be held next month in Doha.

The Doha International Institute for Family Studies and Development (DIIFSD) said that the conference on “Arab Media and the Family” on May 2-3 will look at the role of media in the development of the Arab family.

“The meeting will also discuss ways to encourage studies and research in the field of media and the family and to exchange experiences and expertise in the Arab media on family values,” DIIFSD said.

A workshop for journalists on children’s rights and the need for their protection from violence will be held on the sideline of the international conference organised in co-operation with Qatar’s education ministry and the Arab Council for Childhood and Development.

A second workshop will be conducted for middle and high school students.

The Doha International Institute for Family Studies and Development is an academic institute that conducts research on the legal, sociological, and scientific bases of the family as the natural and fundamental group unit of society.

Established in 2005, it also aims to provide academic research, interdisciplinary studies, and policy initiatives to support the efforts of governments, international organisations, UN agencies and civil society to develop and implement family development plans, policies and programmes.
