Should football boycott the Qatar World Cup?

Professor Tendayi Achiume, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Racism, described how western and Arab nationalities “systematically enjoy greater human rights protections than South Asian and sub-Saharan African nationalities”....FairSquare pointed out that many migrant workers were in the country as a consequence of the World Cup, and implored Fifa to take a public and proactive stance calling for immediate reforms on fundamental rights...The next day, Fifa responded with a short email stating the governing body are “aware of the report” and “will be in touch in due course”...FairSquare are still waiting for a follow-up. The rest of the world is still waiting for any kind of action from Fifa....Norway...will discuss a boycott at an extraordinary meeting in autumn. Most impressively, their team plan some form of protest in their opening qualifier against Gibraltar...If this World Cup emphasises everything that is bad about football, there is still ample time for the sport - and Fifa - to show they can be the force for good the game purports to be.
