  • Building the Man, Building the Nation

    1 November 2020

    A newly published book explores the personal and professional journey of Diar Consult principal Samir Serope Daoud, from his childhood in 1960s Baghdad through the twists and turns of the Middle East’s recent history.

    Building the Man, Building the Nation tells the story of how as a young man, Samir Serope Daoud’s path was set when he met a group of American Jesuits who had built a college by the banks of the Tigris where he was educated, and examines how the evil of Man and Politics would ultimately force them to abandon their hopes for Iraq and its future, and propel them to seek survival in what would become Iraq’s greatest diaspora.

  • Covid-19 Response

    4 May 2020

    As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact the world, Diar Consult has taken a number of measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of its staff and to minimise disruption to its projects and Clients.

    Staff who can work remotely from home using digital platforms are doing so, while in the office there is ample space to implement social distancing. Our site teams continue to provide services on site, with enhanced safety measures, all in compliance with public health directives.

    In the office and on sites, we have minimised face-to-face meetings and are limiting participation, in line with local authority requirements and, wherever possible, we are using video conferencing and other digital collaboration tools. This allows us to continue to work effectively, to serve our Clients, meet deadlines and deliver our projects.

    We will continue to monitor this changing situation and will adapt our response as necessary.
