Qatar Blogs

Do you think you’ve got a good blog? Are you down to earth, honest, and feel you can relate to readers (and/or vice versa)? Then leave a message on this blog post with your blog. I’ll be scouring the net and listing my top 3 favourite blogs in / on Qatar.

Those top 3 will also receive a nice goodie bag!

Update: I think I’ll leave this open for one more week and then get to posting my top 3 favourite :)

    Hey Mr. Q…You can visit my blog at qatariadventures.blogspot.com. It’s about life in Doha from an American perspective with a bit of hodgepodge thrown in. Check out the Life in Doha label or Sykes Life (my crazy cat) for the happenings in the Land of Odd. That’s what I love most about Doha…the odd. Ciao!

Freedom of Expression

    Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the Qatari Government is a signatory of states: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any medias and regardless of any frontiers.

    The Emiri Decision Number 86 of the year 2007 on the establishment of the Doha Free Information Centre marked yet another step towards establishing a State of rights and freedom of speech. The decision stipulated that the Centre be a non-profit organization, headquartered in Doha City, and have the authority to establish other affiliated centres inside and outside Qatar. It is worth mentioning that His Highness the Emir issued a decision in 1998 annulling the ministry of information, giving birth to a new era of freedom of speech where censorship was removed from local media.
