Migrants in Qatar

As Qatar experiences a construction boom and looks forward to hosting the 2022 World Cup, migrant workers from India, Pakistan and across South east Asia and Africa are working in the shadows and behind the scenes building the gleaming skyscrapers across the Persian Gulf in Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Kuwait. Despite their hours of labour, the migrants are often given open ended contracts, cheated by companies that originally hired them, denied access to lawyers and legal protection within the countries they work or loose their papers and means of identity.
