European Parliament Raises Concern Over Workers In Qatar

The European Parliament today "joined the controversy" over '22 FIFA World Cup host Qatar's treatment of migrant workers with a "resolution expressing concern at their plight." The body "stopped short of calling for the abolition" of the Kafala system "under which employees cannot change jobs or leave the country without the permission of their sponsors." The resolution read in part, "MEPs appeal to the European corporations involved in building stadiums or other infrastructure projects in Qatar to provide working conditions that are in line with international human rights standards" (REUTERS, 11/21).
