Al-Babtain also has promoted the Arabic language and culture through establishing several Arabic language chairs in many universities of the world. He was honoured in several ways and awarded high levels of accolades and medals from Arab and international leaders. His name is very well-known in the global cultural scene.
This is the second seminar hosted by Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre since its inauguration last October in the presence of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and the launch of the cultural season that aims to host several special guests from different intellectual and literary trends and to raise important cultural issues.
