The legal framework governing charities in Qatar is a very advanced framework compared to the legal frameworks that govern the work of civil society organizations in the world.
This framework regulates the establishment, management, finance and control of associations.
We mean by the development here, not only in terms of laws and legislations, but also the effectiveness of their application and the degree of law enforcement.
Also, the supervisory framework for charitable work represented by Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities rises to the highest international standards.
The Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities aims to develop, support, encourage, supervise and monitor charitable and humanitarian works. It has wide powers including working to increase awareness and development of charitable work among members of society, issuing instructions regulating charitable and humanitarian work for private charitable foundations, supervising and controlling charitable and humanitarian work carried out by private charitable foundations, supervise and control funds transactions of private charitable foundations.
Here we note that in addition to the supervisory role of Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities, through which it monitors the process of collecting, maintaining and disbursing funds by associations, the authority also has a major role in building the capabilities of associations and providing them with technical support to ensure that they rise to best practices in their field of work.
