Transnational Issues
 
 
 

Disputes – International

Kuwait and Saudi Arabia continue negotiating a joint maritime boundary with Iran. Also, no maritime boundary exists with Iraq in the Persian Gulf.

Trafficking in Persons

Kuwait is a destination country for men and women subjected to forced labour and, to a lesser degree, forced prostitution. Men and women migrate from India, Egypt, Bangladesh, Syria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Nepal, Iran, Jordan, Ethiopia and Iraq to work in Kuwait, most of them in the domestic service, construction, and sanitation sectors. Although most of these migrants enter Kuwait voluntarily, upon arrival some are subjected to conditions of forced labour by their sponsors and labour agents, including non-payment of wages, long working hours without rest, deprivation of food, threats, physical or sexual abuse, and restrictions on movement, such as the withholding of passports or confinement to the workplace.
