Qatar 2022: World Cup or World Shame

Qatar 2022: World Cup or World Shame

In light of the 36th Human Rights Council session at the United Nations, the Arab Federation for Human Rights (AFHR) has researched, gathered and compiled information that highlight the atrocities and human rights violations taking place in Qatar in preparation for the FIFA World Cup in 2022. The report discusses in depth the violations as migrant workers’ abuses and, bribery and corruption claims…

According to the AFHR, the report emphasizes that the rewarding of the FIFA World Cup to Qatar is a direct contradiction to the preservation of human rights and one that is in breach of FIFA’s human rights policy and code of ethics. The AFHR seeks to point that FIFA has a responsibility to protect and adhere to basic human rights and hence, the AFHR urges the international community to call for FIFA to reconsider Qatar as a World Cup host title and initiate a new bidding process.
