As the 2018 World Cup final match came to a close in Russia, the world’s focus moved to 2022 and Qatar, where the next World Cup will be held. However, many enslaved people’s focus is already on Qatar—because they are there, building the new infrastructure in forced labor camps.
Since 2013, there have been reports of human trafficking, abuse, and exploitation of migrant workers, including many deaths in Qatar. According to one report to the Nepalese embassy in Doha, per inquiry in the early days of 2013, at least one Nepalese man died per day doing construction.
