Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s (HBKU) College of Public Policy (CPP) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority (QFCRA), contributing to effective policy development. With the aim of developing initiatives related to public policy development and implementation, both parties agreed to strengthen and promote collaboration at a ceremony held on October 15.

Opportunities for future cooperation include the co-organization of workshops, exchanges of invitations to seminars and conferences, as well as research projects and publications on matters and issues of mutual interest. The latter opportunity includes analysis of public policy as it relates to financial services regulation.

The MoU also provides opportunities for students enrolled in CPP’s Master of Public Policy (MPP) program to gain hands-on experience of policy-making practices and procedures. This will be achieved through a series of internships and participation in research activities. Members of QFCRA staff will also support MPP capstone projects with expert insights and general advice.

 Dr Leslie A. Pal, Founding Dean of CPP

Dr Leslie A. Pal, Founding Dean of CPP, said: “We’re looking forward to building upon HBKU’s already close ties with one of Qatar’s most important regulatory bodies. Transparency and accountability are at the heart of the QFCRA’s work, particularly when it comes to policy development. Those values guide CPP’s approach to teaching public policy, and both parties stand to benefit from closer collaboration.

“We’re also delighted with the comprehensive nature of the Memorandum of Understanding. Not only does it provide opportunities for seasoned academics and practitioners, but it also highlights CPP’s and the QFCRA’s commitment to developing future generations of public policy professionals. We look forward to an innovative and creative partnership over the next three years.”

Chief Executive Officer of the QFCRA, Michael G. Ryan, stated “The QFCRA is very pleased to establish this MoU with the College of Public Policy at HBKU. Policy development plays an essential role in effective financial regulation, and the MoU provides us with a strong foundation for our future work together. It sets a framework for greater collaboration between the QFCRA and CPP, and that partnership and our sharing of expertise and experience will add a new depth and capacity to our work.”
