Discussing Sibylline's Initial Threat Assessment of the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup
Two months before the start of the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup, accusations of state-backed human rights abuses and bribery threaten to overshadow the small Gulf state's hosting of the major sporting event. International reactions to the World Cup remain mixed, as local censorship laws largely prevent the distribution of domestic criticism, while foreign-based activist groups intensify their appeals for the boycott of the tournament and associated sponsors. Qatar's tight security posture largely mitigates the threat of internal civil unrest, but cultural clashes and infrastructural weaknesses remain key concerns.
This Webinar explores the initial physical, operational and security threats facing businesses who are operating in the region, as well as spectators and sponsors affiliated with the World Cup. Our regional experts will assess the probability of travel disruptions in anticipation of the sporting event, and analyse the likelihood of major destabilising factors including terrorism, geopolitical regional escalations and Qatar's overall security landscape.
