Doha will host an international conference on studying the causes of extremism on Saturday and Sunday.  It is organised by the Social & Economic Survey Research Institute at Qatar University (SESRI). It will gather international experts, scientists and decision-makers from a number of countries around the world.  The conference’s agenda includes five sessions, which are going to be on the role of evidence-based policy in combating extremism, assessing risk factors for this phenomenon, ways to control and combat it, processes of extremism and flexibility, with new approaches to measuring extremism and intolerance. The organisers said that the conference is the first-of-its-kind in the Middle East and is part of Qatar’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the fight against terrorism in bilateral and multilateral forums.
