ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
Migrant 
Labour 
Housing 
Reform 
in
 Qatar
 
Paper Proposal Text :
This 
paper 
will 
present
 an
analysis 
of 
preliminary
 plans
and
 discussions
 regarding
 reform
 of 
the 
housing
provisions 
for
 migrant 
labour
in 
Qatar.
There 
have
 been
many
 criticisms 
of 
the 
so‐called
“labour 
camps”
in
 the
country
 which
 are
 of 
varying
 sizes,
configurations,
and
conditions.
Almost
 1 
million 
workers,
primarily
 males,
from
various
 parts
 of 
Asia 
are 
contained 
in
 such
accommodation.
The 
paper 
will
 give
 a
brief 
overview
 of
 the
circumstances
 of 
the
labour 
presence 
and
 an
 overview
 of
what
 possibilities 
there 
are 
for
 possible 
reform
 of 
the
kafala
 system
 of 
migration 
management
 as 
well 
as 
the
research 
being
 conducted
 into 
innovative 
housing 
in 
the
lead
 up 
to 
the massive construction program for the 2011 World Cup in Doha.
