The Doha-based Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Center (ROLACC) signed a joint declaration of intent with Foundation for Strategic Research in France with the aim of developing research programs, joint cooperation and training, and exchanging expertise.
Attorney-General and ROLACC Board Chairman, H E Ali bin Fetais Al Marri, signed on behalf of the centre, while the French foundation’s Deputy Director Jean-François Daguzan represented it.
Under the agreement, the two sides will cooperate in areas of common concern such as fighting corruption, conducting research, training in the areas of internet security, especially in combating hate speech in social networks, in addition to research and training on maritime security and combating piracy.
The agreement also covers the joint organisation of seminars and meetings with the possibility of including brochures on research work related to the agreement.
Al Marri said that cooperation with the French foundation is not a coincidence, adding that it comes as a result of the strong and deep ties between the State of Qatar and the French Republic, which has a long history in the area of supporting freedoms, human rights, education and other issues that promote the fight against corruption.
