Good Evening Dr. Galeeva,
My name is Matthew and I am an IB student at the American School of Doha. I am writing to you regarding a research paper I am currently working on in my Global Politics class. The main goal of my paper is to analyse the effect that Qatar’s human rights abuses of migrant workers in the buildup to the World Cup may have on the country’s soft power moving forward.
Your research into the practice of “rented power” in Qatar caught my eye, and I believe your insight would be beneficial to the development of my arguments. The nature of this project requires me to engage with people to gain perspectives surrounding my political issue. Therefore, I was wondering if you would be available to meet over a video call sometime soon to discuss this issue, to further my research. Please let me know if you would be available for this, I would truly appreciate it. I am happy to provide more information if necessary.
