Migrant workers continue to face risks in Dubai, one year ahead of Expo 2020

Middle East Eye, UAE, 21 October 2019 - Several construction firms that have failed to disclose how they are protecting migrant workers in the United Arab Emirates have been contracted by the Emirati government to build infrastructure in the Gulf Kingdom, a year before Expo 2020 is set to take place in Dubai, according to an advocacy group.

 

Analysis by the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC) showed that companies who have failed to disclose were given 62 building projects worth billions of dollars by the Emiratis.
At least two construction groups - the Al-Arif group and Saudi-owned Bin Laden group - have been given contracts for construction in Dubai despite having been accused of abusing migrant workers.
