Qatar was awarded the rights to host the 2022 World Cup, thus making history with this World Cup being the first to be held in the Middle East. The Qatari government's goal may have been to bring international prestige, but it has also come under scrutiny for the country’s human rights practices. Adding to this are also long-standing corruption allegations hanging over the bidding process for the games, which Qatar has consistently denied any wrongdoing. For Qatar, what will be the political and economic impact of hosting the World Cup? We speak to Dr. James Dorsey, Adjunct Senior Fellow, S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies for insights.
