Abstract:

Little is known about the workers that have migrated to the Persian Gulf for jobs spurred by the oil industry. This vast influx has largely been unplanned unregulated and unexamined. Where do these workers come from, what do they earn and save, what are their conditions of work and what are the effects of migration on both host and sender countries? And, above all, what rights do they have and are they subject to abuse and exploitation? This pioneering new study answers these questions, gives a concise overview of the situation and gives valuable insight into the world of the migrant workers, exiled in a hot harsh land, far from home and family.
