As the COVID-19 pandemic brings labor exploitation and worker vulnerability into full view, a panel of experts will focus on labor supply chains, how they function, how they have evolved over time, and what has worked (and what hasn’t) in curtailing worker abuses. As a focal case study, the speakers will draw on their expertise of the Arab Gulf, a region that relies heavily on migrant labor and that abolished slavery only in living memory. The crowded conditions in migrant camps and the presence of a shadow population of undocumented migrants has exacerbated the effect of COVID-19, which has placed enormous stress on all systems, further exposing both structural and practical inequities facing marginalized workers in wealthy countries. The panel addresses the implications of lessons from the Arab Gulf for building a stronger regime to protect human rights of workers after the crisis in other regions of the world.
