N2 - In recent years Qatar’s higher education system has undergone major changes as a result of an ambitious educational reform movement within the country. While this movement has brought in numerous foreign branch campuses that opened up academic opportunities that had not previously existed, it also has created some discord between the values of locals and the Western institutions. Research has been conducted on various aspects of Qatari higher education, but each study only provides a glimpse of a very complicated system. This chapter utilizes the ROAD-MAPPING Framework (Dafouz and Smit, Appl Linguis 37(3): 397–415, 2016) to examine higher education in Qatar from a macro, holistic view. The dimensions of Roles of English, Academic Disciplines, (Language) Management, Agents, Practices and Processes, and Internationalzation and Glocalization will be explored. Through the results of this multi-dimensional analysis, future recommendations for language policy and research are proposed. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
