dc.description.abstract Qatar is a country that is undergoing a rapid process of economic development and modernization; yet, its population has been struggling with traditional practices and tribal customs viewed as incompatible with its new regional and global role. The relationship between tribalism and modernity, and particularly the impact of this relationship on Qatari women, is examined in this thesis. To what extent does tribalism hinder the development of modern Qatari society? How is the traditional perception of women's roles in society being augmented in light of modernization? These questions are addressed in this thesis through a series of interviews conducted in two Qatari universities with Bedouin and Hadar students. The study reveals that despite gender and tribal differences in attitudes, important traditional perceptions of women's roles have been undermined in favor of modern views. Economic development, mass education, and the various initiatives taken by the Qatari state and women leaders are responsible for the greater social participation of Qatari women in society and for shifting traditional tribal worldviews. en_US
