The World Cup is the biggest and most prestigious soccer tournament in the world.
Held every four years, it features 32 of the best national teams from around the globe. This year, it will be held in Qatar - a country with a dark and troubling past.
The World Cup is supposed to be a time of celebration, a competition between the best of the best. But in 2022, the World Cup will be held in Qatar, a country with a shocking record of human rights abuses. How did Qatar managed to secure the bid for the World Cup? By bribing FIFA officials, of course. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Qatar is also guilty of using modern slavery to build its World Cup facilities. Migrant workers from countries like Nepal and India make up a large percentage of the country's population, and they often work in dangerous and abusive conditions. In addition, Qatar has been accused of discriminating against women and LGBTQ+, promoting inequality.
Given all of these concerns, it's hard to see how the World Cup can be held in Qatar without creating major ethical problems. Many claim that Qatar is not a country that deserves to host the World Cup. It's clear that those involved have blood on their hands, and it's time for them to take responsibility.
Discover how Qatar won the bid to host the World Cup despite allegations of bribery and corruption. Learn about their use of modern slavery and promotion of inequality. And find out if this controversial event will end up being a tragedy or a triumph.
