Qatar World Cup: Families in Nepal seek migrant worker justice

The 2022 World Cup kicks off in just four days in Qatar amid persistent allegations of human rights abuses and even deaths amongst migrant workers who built the stadiums and other tournament infrastructure.

Thousands of the workers came from Nepal – and for many of them the legacy of the World Cup won’t be about the beautiful game, but about debt, loss, or worse.

For almost a decade, the journalist and filmmaker Pete Pattison has been following the journeys of the Nepalese families fighting for justice.
