Doha Heat
Doha Heat is a weekly, communal podcast created for every type of individual who currently calls Qatar home, has in the past, or may one day.

Qatar has been under a lot of scrutiny these past years for human and labor rights, so we invited the International Labor Organization (ILO) to clear some of these misconceptions. We spoke to Houtan Homayounpour, Head of the ILO Project office for the State of Qatar about the reason behind the Qatar-ILO partnership, new initiatives and reforms the government is taking, how Qatar has tackled criticism with regards to human rights, and much more!
