Globalization entails the emergence of a global culture which is considered a threat to national identity, often publicized by states and academics. Further, globalization specifically cultural globalization is seen to have an impact on national identity particularly amongst younger generations. Nonetheless, studies haves shown that globalization is not always a negative phenomenon. The Qatar National Vision 2030 states that globalization can be compatible with Qatar’s culture and traditions, elements firmly ingrained in Qatar national identity. Qatar is committed to foster national identity to ensure national cohesiveness while retaining its role in the global network. The promotion of national identity amidst cultural globalization is a state goal. This research employs a quantitative research design to assess the impact of globalization on national identity across different generations of Qatari citizens namely those aged 18 and above. Based on the findings, it can be argued that globalization and national identity are positively correlated.
