United Nations calls on Qatar to reform workers rights

Qatar has acceded seven UN treaties, including two major ones in 2018, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which set out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that everyone is entitled to, based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

However, the member states called upon Qatar to remove its reservations to some of the articles of the Covenants and swiftly adapt its national laws to their principles.

“It’s a work in progress, we have created committees that shall review our legislations based on the articles of the Covenants,” said an official from its Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
