The Ministry of Education and Higher Education organised a seminar on the integration of the unjust siege of Qatar into the educational curricula, in which a number of specialists, educators and academics from relevant state authorities took part.
Participants in the seminar agreed on the importance of the subject and to include topics about the siege in educational curricula as a significant historical event.
They also pointed to other beneficial aspects of the unjust siege such as disseminating media awareness and refining the skills of students, and made a number of recommendations in this regard.
