Now, Qataris feel much less attached to GCC: Survey

There has been a marked decline in the emotional attachment Qataris feel with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states in the post-blockade period, a new survey has pointed out. The results of National Identity Survey revealed that while a large proportion of Qataris feel strongly connected to the Islamic and Arab world, their attachment with the GCC states has seen a dramatic decline. “In December 2010, 66 percent of citizens said they felt very connected to Gulf countries. In November 2017, this figure dropped to 21 percent,” Majid al Ansari, director of Policy Department at the Institute for Social and Economic Research, said.
