Podcast | Qatar 2022 with Ambet Yuson and Hassan Al Thawadi

Qatar's human rights record has been in the spotlight since they won the right to host the FIFA Mens World Cup back in 2010.

Recently there have been some major developments in labour laws in the country but there are still a lot of challenges, including ensuring that standards developed for the World Cup take root across the country.

In this podcast Centre CEO Mary Harvey sits down with two people who have been at the centre of all the changes - Ambet Yuson, General Secretary of BWI (Building and Wood Workers International, the global trade union representing over 12 million construction workers worldwide) and His Excellency Hassan Al Thawadi, the Secretary General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy and the CEO of the Qatar World Cup Local Organising Committee.
