The book recounts Dr. Al Kawari's biography, which combines personal tales and his passion for knowledge, manifested with deep wisdom.

The Global Majlis offers readers a unique insight into the Minister of State's lifetime of diplomacy and nuances of statecraft, welcoming them to an intellectual gathering where a new era of cultural diplomacy forges stronger ties between the world's nations and civilisations. Through his extensive career, Dr. Al Kawari sheds light on his rich journey between aspects of humanity's major issues, offering reflections and discussing issues of cultural diplomacy, dialogue of cultures, media, cultural industries and concerns about heritage preservation. 

This will be the eighth translation of his book, which is already offered to readers in French, English, Spanish, Hindi, Persian, Turkish.

The ceremony was attended by H E Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Thani, Ambassador of Qatar to the Federal Republic of Germany; Dr. Lawrence Al Hanawi, Director General of the Arab Cultural House; and German orientalist, Dr. Sebastian Heine who translated the book from Arabic to German. Each of them gave a welcome speech. The ceremony concluded with a reading and signing of the book by Dr. Al Kawari. 

Commenting on the occasion, Sheikh Abdullah said:“I would like to congratulate Dr. Hamad on the launch of the German translation of his valuable book, The Global Majlis. This ceremony falls in line with the mission of the Arabic Cultural House in bringing cultures closer together, building bridges of communication between them, and introducing Arab culture in the field of thought, literature and the arts.” 

Dr. Al Kawari said:“It is an honour to be attending this ceremony for the publication of the German translation of my book. I hope the book helps provide readers with a deeper cultural understanding of the rich Arab culture and establishes a broader strategic dialogue in the cultural field. I would like to express my gratitude to all those who attended the ceremony and look forward to future cultural exchanges between Qatar and Germany.”
