Ad hoc Working group on FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022
Who are we?
We are a group of delegates and experts from States Parties and State and non-State Observers, who aim at supporting the Committee on the monitoring and exchange on safety, security and service preparations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
What do we do?
Our main tasks are:
- Ensure regular exchange of information and facilitate cooperation between all relevant Parties and Observers to the T-S4 Committee and the relevant authorities of the State of Qatar and FIFA, namely by holding at least two meetings before the tournament and one after it; and
- Work in cooperation with the T-S4 Advisory Group on International Cooperation to draft a final report with the legacy of the tournament in the field of safety, security and service at sports events (S4).
Since we were established, we met in December 2021 to monitor the state of safety, security and service preparations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, facilitating the exchange of knowledge and information between the organisers, participating and transit countries, previous organisers and other relevant stakeholders. We plan to meet once again before the tournament and hold a final evaluation meeting in June 2023.
