Media Policy

Effective media is of paramount importance in transferring knowledge and nurturing a constructive dialogue. The media plays an important role as a learning and educational platform, particularly in the context of the information and communications technology (ICT) revolution. The media has put forward the best ICT advances, overcoming age-old barriers and reaching out to all in a timely and interactive fashion. The media not only serves as a tool that helps to convey a mission and a vision; it also plays a pivotal role in exchanging with and providing information to the public. Contributing to shaping culture, priorities and thinking, the media is highly relevant to the transformation of society.

Complaints Policy

The AMQF aims to operate within a positive environment and maintain a constructive relationship with all of its stakeholders. However, disagreements may arise. In some cases, informal discussions with the people concerned can often settle the matter, and this is our preferred approach. In other cases, however, a more formal process might be needed to handle complaints. At the A. M. Qattan Foundation, we view complaints as an opportunity to learn and to improve our services to the public. Thank you for helping us to do this. To read the full Complaints Policy, click here
