Qatar is Still Failing Its Migrant Workers

The rights group Amnesty International has said. Qatar has made little progress on improving migrant workers' rights, despite promises to do so. The working and housing conditions of migrant construction workers have been heavily criticised. Amnesty has been monitoring conditions in the run up to the 2022 World Cup but says progress has been limited in some areas and non-existent in others. "Significant changes have been made over the last year to improve the rights and conditions of expatriate workers," a statement by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs said. The Amnesty report comes as two sponsors of the football tournament, Visa and Coca-Cola, voiced concerns over migrants workers' rights.
