Video: Outsourced to Qatar

National Association of Scholars

Qatar has become a major donor to American universities in recent years. Between 2001 and 2021, the petro-state gave universities at least $4.7 billion. Though the country may be small, its donations to American universities present large ethical and security concerns.

This webinar features NAS's new case study on Northwestern University's branch campus, as well as our recent exposé on Texas A&M's failure to report $100 million in Qatari funds.

Panelists include Neetu Arnold, Senior Research Associate at the National Association of Scholars and lead author of Outsourced to Qatar; Dan Currell, Fellow at the National Security Institute and former Deputy Under Secretary and Senior Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education; and Michael Rubin, Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. The speakers discuss the implications of Qatar funding on national security, research, and academic freedom.
