In a new ground-breaking partnership, Qatar Museums (QM) and University College London in Qatar (UCL Qatar) have announced they will deliver a new legal framework for cultural heritage for the State of Qatar. In the coming months, senior leaders from both institutions will draw on internal and external expertise from organisations like UNESCO with the aim of modernising cultural heritage laws currently protected under the Law on Antiquities, No. 2, which was published in 1980. The project seeks to further protect and promote Qatar’s heritage and culture in line with Qatar’s National Vision 2030.
