EXCERPT FROM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

“In this brief, BSR frames findings and recommendations by looking at structural issues affecting migrant workers in Qatar and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. The brief also considers contextual issues specific to how these workers will be affected by the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The brief concludes that an effective plan to prevent abuses of migrant workers during preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup must address the underlying issues affecting migrant workers in the region, as well as specific issues that could arise in the context of bringing in hundreds of thousands of additional workers to build infrastructure projects for the event.”
