FIFA World Cup: Qatar World Cup – Amidst the Migrant Labour controversy, Qatar is making progress on worker rights. Qatar’s treatment of migrant labourers has been a global issue in the recent past and there have been calls for boycotting the Qatar World Cup from various corners of the world. It is estimated that close to 30,000 migrant labourers have been used for several projects including building seven stadiums for the tournament in Qatar, as well as a new airport, new metro, and new roads.

Qatar has come under heavy scrutiny from human rights groups over its treatment of migrant labourers. According to reports from Amnesty International, since 2010, thousands of migrant workers have faced human rights abuses while working on the infrastructure necessary to host the tournament.

According to shocking reports which came out last year, more than 6,500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka have died in Qatar since it won the right to host the World Cup 10 years ago.

Although the official reports suggested 6,500 deaths, the total death toll is significantly higher, as these figures did not include deaths from a number of countries that send large numbers of workers to Qatar, including the Philippines and Kenya.

These shocking revelations led to a global agitation, with human rights from all over the world, calling for a ban on the tournament and the removal of Qatar as host.

However, these are good signs that reports suggest Qatar is making progress in terms of worker rights. “There was an acknowledgment at the time that gaps existed. We have demonstrated through our various ecosystems that meaningful steps can be taken to fill those gaps and now the labour landscape has changed”said Mahmoud Qutub, the committee’s director of workers’ welfare and labour rights.
