Josoor Institute undertakes research that delivers proprietary knowledge. This will be used to improve our courses; stimulate debate among our alumni, associates and other key stakeholders; and establish us as thought leaders in the sport and event management industries.

Our research team department is tasked with developing a proactive programme of proprietary research that delivers significant and tangible outcomes.Through this programme, we are generating value-adding insights that enhance our education and training provision, contribute to the development of our Knowledge Hub and add value to all of our partners and key stakeholders.

Our research is designed to solve problems, generate specific knowledge and deliver practical outputs. The focus of our research is on addressing the technical and human capability-building challenges faced by Qatar and the MENA region in the build-up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup™.


The Case Study will look at the lessons from related HR literature and apply this to the formulation of a systems-based understanding of such practices within Qatar’s Sport Event Industry. In particular, it will seek to highlight specific issues that present on-going challenges throughout the sporting world. By applying a critical HR lens to such issues, the intention is to deepen the knowledge of both theory and applied practice as a prelude to possible future actions.

What’s HR Got to Do with It?

Human Resource Management is a relatively new concept, having been born in the departments of several prominent international Business Schools in the mid-late 1970s. It follows a slowly developing range of ideas about management, originating in the early part of the 20th Century. Arguably, these follow on from over 2000 years of philosophical thought. From the ‘Socratic Method’ to Aristotle’s ‘virtue ethics’ to ‘consequentialism’, ‘humanitarianism’ and ‘deontology’.
