Human Rights Watch on the new influential role of UAE in ILO

The Kafala System, which is a sponsorship program in which migrant domestic labour force is brought to work and monitored to countries such as Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, has policies in place that constrains the employees to have no movability, once being brought and sponsored by their employer despite the case of going through abuse situations. The Kafala system has been highly criticized and considered to give ground to situations of human rights violations. UAE, which is about to take a new important role in the ILO is being put into perspective and pressured by organizations such as Human Rights Watch, to reform policies that allow situations of abuse and unfair treatment to domestic workers.
