NU-Q to provide consultation on Al Jazeera America

In a move intended to better understand and develop media in Qatar and the region, Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) and Al Jazeera Network have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will allow professionals and budding journalists from both sides to benefit from the combined expertise of the two institutions through joint research and strategic studies projects, training workshops, a co-designed lecture series, internships and faculty contributions as well as journalist-exchange programs.

In addition, NU-Q will conduct consultations with Al Jazeera leadership based on its faculty research interests and expertise in the American media industry, as the news network moves forward with its planning for Al Jazeera America.

The MoU with Al Jazeera is one of several collaborations that NU-Q has recently undertaken as part of its active role in the development of a thriving media industry. In October 2012, the university joined hands with Doha Film Institute in the lead up to the Doha Tribeca Film Festival to shine a spotlight on local film-making talent.
