Abstract

This short essay was written for the Qatar National Research Fund's National Priorities Research Program Grant 6-459-5–050, the Rule of Law in Qatar and the Arab Gulf Project. It argues that the wealth of data, information, relationships, partnerships, experiences, and opportunities the Externship Program has created in Qatar during its brief existence stands to show that the pedagogy in the Middle East and similar regions is more than possible and positive results are achievable so long as sufficient tailoring efforts are made to address cultural and sociological barriers.
