Race and exploitation in the Gulf

Thursday, 24 August, 2017

From openDemocracy:

Kafala has been discussed in the context of modern slavery and exploitation, and its misuse has also allowed for the facilitation of sex trafficking. Yet the wider social, economic, and political background through which this sponsorship system operates is not given adequate attention in the literature. The issue of race and racism in the Gulf needs to be addressed in order to tackle the problem of modern day slavery.
