Qatar World Cup 2022: The FA did not respond to HRW call to "publicly request FIFA to remedy migrant worker abuses"
In August 2022, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the FA to respond to a HRW article which states “with the World Cup fast approaching, the English Football Association has yet to take a clear position” on the provision of remedy for abuses against migrant workers during the preparation for the tournament. The article also states:
"The Association should build on England men’s captain Harry Kane’s call for a unified stand on human rights and publicly request FIFA to remedy migrant worker abuses, including through financial compensation. A bold stance will set an example for young fans across the country, both on and off the pitch."
While the FA did not respond to the request for response to the HRW article, a spokesperson did say:
I would point you to the latest output from the UEFA Working Group report which outlines the latest thinking and progress made. Our CEO, Mark Bullingham is a member of the group,
and also referred us to information previously disclosed by the FA.
