Qatar is home to people from dozens of countries across the world, and hundreds of different languages are spoken here.
Because Doha is a small community, sometimes residents think they know more about one another than they actually do. To explore some of the misconceptions we hold about each other, Doha News recently asked residents on the Corniche about their experiences.
The hope is to open up a (productive) conversation about stereotypes, so that we can all become more aware of whether we’re typecasting – and work to overcome our preconceived notions.
We aimed to get a wide sample of responses, though some nationalities were shyer than others to participate.
What stereotypes do people hold about your country?
This report was inspired by a discussion about stereotypes produced by Northwestern University in Qatar journalism students.
