INTRODUCTION: The unjust and surprising Qatar blockade may be considered the most important event in the country's contemporary history, given its essential political, economic and social impacts on Qatar’s present and future. After that the “Qatari ship” has successfully overcome the storm, it is now necessary to consider the ensuing challenges and opportunities that would shape the new Qatar. Therefore, Qatar University, represented by SESRI, engaged in conducting a comprehensive national study using the most accurate scientific research methodologies to explore Qataris’ political, economic and social attitudes towards the developments resulting from the crisis, and draw the main conclusions to provide recommendations to decision makers in Qatar. The present report outlines the results of dozens of carefully selected indicators and compares them with previous results, if any, to explore the crisis impact on Qataris’ views and perceptions. The report is divided into 5 parts as follows: • The Legal Implications • The Political Implications • The Economic Implications • The Social Implications • Implications on Human Development This report summarizes the main findings of the study. The data collected will undoubtedly constitute information wealth that will be built upon in the next phases, particularly in documenting the social, economic and political transformations in the Qatari society due to local and regional events, especially the Qatar Blockade.
