Cautious optimism as Qatar kafala system reforms into law

Humanity United joins our partners and colleagues in welcoming the Government of Qatar’s announcement of the passage into law of significant reforms to the country’s foreign worker sponsorship (kafala) system and in calling for these reforms to be quickly and effectively implemented...

To make a meaningful difference in the lives of migrant workers, the Qatari government must accompany these legal changes with strong action against abusive employers and ensure that complaints mechanisms can be safely and easily accessed by workers and deliver timely justice and remedy for abuse. Importantly, workers themselves must be a part of this process. Their voices must be heard loud and clear and their concerns adequately addressed.

Reactions from organizations working on the issue have been largely positive, but the majority note that changes to the law is just a first step.
