In this in-depth interview with Dr. Natasha Ridge, Executive Director of the Al Qasimi Foundation, Al Ghorfa provides a helpful overview of the Foundation and its activities. From discussions of research in the Arab world to the Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival, Dr. Ridge invites readers to engage not only with the Foundation, but with local and national communities. In particular, this piece takes a look at the Foundation's ongoing research and capacity development initiatives, including its student programs. It also provides insight into what lies ahead for the ambitious think tank, which is complementing its focus on education research with strategic collaborations though the Fulbright scholarship program as well as local and international institutions of higher education.
