I really don't want you to think of Qatar as a hydrocarbon country alone. We know that hydrocarbons will come and go. But education will stay. It is the most important thing for us.

Overview: Qatar 

Not that Qatar itself has been free from coups d’état. In February 1972, the Heir Apparent, Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad al Thani deposed his cousin, one Ahmed bin Ali al Thani, and assumed power. Key members of the Al Thani family supported this move, which took place without violence or signs of political unrest.In June 1995, the Deputy Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa, deposed his father Khalifa bin Hamad in a bloodless coup. An unsuccessful counter-coup was staged in 1996. The Emir and his father subsequently became reconciled. In June 2013 the 33 year old  Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani assumed power as emir after his father abdicated. Sheikh Tamim was educated in the UK, first at the liberal Sherborne School in Dorset, which counts numerous well known names among its graduates.
