    Amnesty presses FIFA on Qatar's 'rampant migrant labor abuse'

    “Qatar’s persistent labor reform delays are a recipe for human rights disaster,” said Mustafa Qadri, Gulf migrant rights researcher at Amnesty International.

    Five years to the day since Qatar secured 2022 World Cup hosting rights, Amnesty International says the Gulf nation has done little to “address rampant migrant labor abuse”. Qatar has made pledges for labor reforms and the 2022 World Cup committee has introduced a workers’ charter. But the kafala system of tied employment has yet to be overhauled to ease restrictions on workers’ rights.
