In her Reality Check 2021, the organization s experts come to the conclusion that progress has stagnated, and old abusive practices have even emerged again. In other words, despite a change in Law in the summer of 2020, there are still massive dependencies of guest workers to their employers. Actually, the Emirate had agreed to simplify workplace or expelled and thus to weaken the exploitative practices of the so-called Kamala system.
Workers and workers reported Amnesty International, however, that at workplace, they continue to encounter significant hurdles and remain under pressure, says in the report. And on, Qatar has introduced a number of reforms in favor of working migrant women since 2017. However, these reforms are not properly implemented, which means exploitation. Various partner of the emirate from the sport praise the alleged progress, which was created by the critical discourse as a result of the World Cup contract.
Implementation of the reforms considerably stalled
In practice, however, there seems to be extreme gaps. On the one hand, the triggered reforms in the region are unique, emphasizes Katja Müller-Fahlbusch. However, the reform implementation is half-heartedly and less consistent. Last year, the implementation of the reforms is considerably stalling, though the international pressure on Qatar was considerable, says the expert for the Middle East and North Africa region at Amnesty International Germany. It speaks of resistors of the Catholic economy and demands the government, violations of labor law consistently to be considered to be accounted for and abusive employer. If she does not do that, it may not be surprised by the Katarina government that questions about the political will for real reforms be raised.

Müller-Fahlbusch sees FIFA as an organizer of the Football World Cup in accordance with the VN Leitrinzipia for Economics and Human Rights in the duty to ensure that human rights are not violated, and that remedy is created if it happens. The World Federation must independently, regularly and carefully check the situation of human rights and may not rely on third parties in this exam. To create transparency and credibility, FIFA should also publicly report on maladministration and measures taken to remedy.
The sport has problems with public criticism of Qatar

Timing: The most important dates until the World Cup 2022
Bayern Munich has a partnership with Qatar Airways, and I ve never been a Pharisee, if I may say that so. We have received good money from this contract, explained about ex-FCB board Chef Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. The Munich would engage in social policy in the Emirate — how concrete, but that s the question. Rummenigge does not unjust when it explains: In principle, it must also say that in Qatar from all Arab states at the moment the best or the greatest improvements are there in terms of human and labor rights. As far as the theory, which represents the latest Amnesty report in practice at least as gaps.
T-shirt action of the DFB? A good starting point
That the German Football Association has passed a position to the World Cup in Qatar praises Müller-Fahlbusch. Even the national team players have set an important sign with their T-shirt action. All this is a good starting point. Public statements may not be unique in our view when they should cause something, demands the Amnesty expert, to hold up the pressure.
In our assessment, the DFB may help as an important member of FIFA and UEFA even more to ensure that human rights in sports will also become a central topic at international level. If FIFA, such as the award of the Club World Cup 2022 to the United Arab Emirates, its own human rights principles throws overboard, then the DFB can and should well position itself publicly.
