QatarDebate - member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development - announced the launch of its new corporate re-brand identity, and the new slogan: Dialogue, Debate, and Diplomacy. These changes come at a time when QD is celebrating its 10th year anniversary and reflects the current and future direction of the center.

"The new rebrand identity marks a very exciting time for QatarDebate," said Dr. Hayat Maarafi, Executive Director of QatarDebate Center, adding "Over the past decade, we've pioneered by delivering a wide range of top-quality debate learning programs in both languages, Arabic and English, which seek to promote the culture and use of debate, open dialogue, and discussion as effective academic and personal skills, and the new rebranding and slogan does a great job of capturing that". Stressing: "With confident steps, we reach young students of foreign universities and debate ambassadors of their countries, by the art of debates. The time has come to move beyond the young stage to the stage of maturity and modernity that reflects the evolution concept of QatarDebate center."

"Dialogue is a part of our daily lives in all issues that touch our reality, but when the difference of views comes, the role of the Center is to put through the debate a strategy and a structure to manage the dialogue, and from here we begin to employ diplomacy to resolve the coexistence between The interlocutors instead of the difference in views” she added. "We’re excited about the rebrand change; it puts us in a better position to grow." Said Abdulrahman Al-Subaie, Head of Outreach Program – QatarDebate, stressing that our aim is to shape the global citizens of today and the intellectual leaders of tomorrow in Qatar, the region, and internationally.

He pointed out that the motivation for developing the center's logo is that the target group has expanded and touched a society instead of a specific category. The scope of aspirations and objectives related to the development of performance commensurate with the center level, it is very important for this initiative to keep its position and employ its activities for the better. The revised logo will be used as of Monday, February 11, in all events and communication with internal and external institutions.
