Qatar: 'Treat us like we are human': Migrant workers in Qatar
There are some 1.35 million foreign nationals working in Qatar. Migrant workers now make up some 94 per cent of the total workforce in the country. The population of the country is growing at a remarkable rate, largely due to the recruitment of low-paid migrant workers to support infrastructure development. It is, therefore, more vital than ever that the laws, systems and practices in place to protect migrant workers’ human rights are robust and effective. However, Amnesty International’s research reveals that this is far from the case.
