Abstract

Qatar is the first Arab country to host the FIFA World Cup. With this as a starting point, AGYA members Dr. Jan Busse and AGYA alumnus Dr. Anis Ben Amor initiated a publication project to showcase the rich history and promising trajectories of football in this region. By bringing together various experts and scholars from Arab countries and Germany, the publication offers a wide range of contemporary debates from both, Arab and German public spheres. The contributions on football in Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Iran, Morocco, Palestine, Qatar, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, UAE and Yemen investigate diverse examples of the interplay between football as a sport, a cultural phenomenon, and a societal battleground.
