Migrant Worker Abuse in the GCC

Series 3 Episode 21 - 04.09.2015

In our discussion on “Migrant Worker Abuse in the GCC” we’ll be exploring how the Kafala sponsorship system undermines the balance between employer and employee, how workers are trapped, exploited and abused within the binding contract, and at a time when Qatar is under heightened media scrutiny in the lead up to the 2022 World Cup, we’ll be considering the likelihood of the kafala system being abolished once and for all, as well as what improvements to labour laws are being made in the region.
