Theme of Award for the Second Session – 2019

Migration in the Context of a Cultural Dialogue

General Context:

    Migration has received a special and distinguished attention at the international sentimental, intellectual and political level, because it has been, and still is, associated with the huge transformation in the life of mankind. Migration was, mostly, the big event that has been a turning point in the history of mankind, and a major conversion in the social, political, economic and cultural existence. It has been followed by intellectual and cultural changes that transferred mankind to a new phase different from any previous phases.

    Despite the many approaches enriching the international political, juristic and social thought, most of such theses stemmed from clear association to intellectual ideologies which subjected the future of wide categories of people to the logic and structure of the dominant concept. Looking into the logic of things through an association of a lofty model would consider that human rights are not discussed through their internal framework and constituents, but rather through that dominant and prevalent model which assumes that the materialistic pattern and national interest are above any moral consideration. Such model turns a blind eye to its negativities and its internal contradictions which resulted in a host of international crises, especially that of racial, religious and Islamophobia. This is besides war and famine victims, let alone the views of such model abouts the international law and order on the basis of a materialistic basis away from the spiritual and moral aspect. this is not a political philosophy as much as it is an ideological one which serves the western centralism and reproduces it using new and different artificial tools.

     Migration takes differing forms, from free choice to compulsory reality. While some people live emigration as a positive experience which enables them to find a true living, others see it as a chance to escape atrocity, extremism, terrorism, wars, unemployment, illiteracy, depravation and all forms of discrimination, exploitation and marginalization. Despite all this, the migration portfolio, according to the Immigration Department, is dependent on a broad cultural perspective and subject to farfetched conditions.??? This will remain so as long as human rights and humanitarian interest are dependent on an inhumane and non-moral basis; and it does not take into effect any consideration for others who are different, weak or destitute. Violations of human rights against immigrants still involve deprivation of their civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. Mostly, this deprivation is strongly associated with discriminatory laws, and with bias and hatred towards foreigners and those who are different.

      In the context of enhancing efforts to find permanent and practical solutions to the immigration issue, the importance of the strategic partnership among nations in all aspects appears to highlight the need for keeping the international peace and security, and supporting the development process without which the goals sought by the United Nations would not be achieved. To realize such goals like enhancement of justice, human rights, providing humanitarian assistance and participation in collective work, it is necessary to look into this issue extensively and comprehensively. This effort is needed to confront the existent challenges facing the world, with the objective of arriving at solutions to the regional and international crises, preventing conflicts and building and keeping peace. This is exactly what coincides with the State of Qatar vision in the Alliance of Civilizations in theory and practice. It also concurs with several institutional, civil and academic efforts geared to activate the mechanisms of integrating immigrants into the societies the arrived at, improving their various conditions and absorbing any expected unwanted effects in handling this sensitive issue.

      From this vision, Qatar Committee for the Alliance of Civilizations at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the ISESCO Chair for the Alliance of Civilizations of the Faculty of Sharia and Islamic Studies at the University of Qatar are introducing  the Second Session for the Global Award for Dialogue among Civilizations – 2019 under the subject/title “ Migration within the Context of Culture Dialogue”.
