Gulf Construction Tracker: Analysis
The Gulf Construction Tracker was launched as a tool for research and advocacy on migrant workers’ rights in the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE) in 2017. Using publicly available sources, it tracks the awarding of construction contracts in the countries and enables us to identify who is employing large numbers of migrant labourers to work on construction sites.
The below research briefings use data from the Tracker to increase transparency on which companies are winning awards, the value of contracts, who is awarding contracts (private or state-owned companies) and the types of projects being built. By cross-referencing with our research tracking allegations of labour abuse against migrant workers in the Gulf and previous survey outreach to construction companies, we highlight particular areas of risk to migrant worker welfare.
