|Title:||B-Roll Qatar: The Dark Side of Migration|
This B Roll has been released in conjunction with the Amnesty International Report: The Dark Side of Migration: Spotlight on Qatar's Construction Sector Ahead of the World Cup. It features footage filmed during two Amnesty International Missions in Oct 2012 & March 2013.
There are some 1.35 million foreign nationals – the great majority from countries in Asia including Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines and Sri Lanka – 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. This trend is set to increase in the coming years as Qatar gears up for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. 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.
