FairSquare Projects

FairSquare Projects is a non-profit human rights organisation that tailors rigorous research with communication and advocacy work to promote systemic change. We work on issues that we believe are neglected or poorly tackled. Our current priority areas are: 

Labour rights and migrant workers.

With the support of Open Societies Foundation, we led the Five Corridors Project, a major piece of research into the role of governments in ensuring fair recruitment of migrant workers.

With the support of Humanity United, we are managing the Vital Signs Project to quantify and research the deaths of thousands of migrant workers in the Gulf every year. We have a longstanding body of work on the rights of migrant workers in Qatar.

FairSquare produces occasional policy briefs. The first, on migrant workers in Saudi Arabia, was published in October 2020.

Authoritarianism and democracy.

Authoritarian ideology is on the rise and using new tactics to undermine democratic institutions and movements. We seek to respond to authoritarians’ efforts to brand themselves through sporting and cultural partnerships, and where we can play a positive role, we provide advocacy and other support to those confronting autocrats directly.
