Complaint concerning non-observance by Qatar of the Forced Labour Convention, 1930 (No. 29), and the Labour Inspection Convention, 1947 (No. 81), made by delegates to the 103rd Session (2014) of the International Labour Conference under article 26
Technical cooperation between Qatar and the ILO (2018–20)
The Project lies within the Government of Qatar’s efforts to implement numerous reforms related to laws and regulations on employment, as well as to provide additional guarantees that promote and protect workers’ rights. It was developed as a result of consultations conducted between the ILO and Qatar.
This Technical Cooperation Project in Qatar reflects the common commitment of both the Government of Qatar and the ILO to cooperate on ensuring compliance with ratified international labour Conventions, as well as achieving fundamental principles and rights at work in the State of Qatar in a gradual manner during the period 2018–20. This will be done through: improvement in payment of wages, enhanced labour inspection and OSH systems, refinement of the contractual system that replaced the kafalasystem and to improve labour recruitment procedures, increased prevention, protection and prosecution against forced labour, and promotion of the workers’ voice. During the life of the project, the ILO Senior Technical Advisor in charge of this project will submit an annual progress report on the project to the ILO Governing Body at its November session.
