Football Associations can play an important role in advancing good practice and through their actions contribute to the implementation of reformed labour laws in Qatar. This involves scrutinising those they do business with, including in the hospitality, security, transport and other service sectors. This starter kit highlights the types of questions that federations can ask of their business partners concerning labour rights protections in Qatar. It has been developed to support making responsible decisions on the goods and services used in Qatar and to ensure federations are taking proactive steps to avoid contributing to or benefitting from human rights violations. These types of questions should also be considered as part of a responsible risk management process for partnering with suppliers in any country.
