這一問題可以從制度理論的社會視角進行分析。社會視角指出，由於網絡內部的交互作用，機構行爲者，尤其是所有者，被授權以特定方式行事(Fuenfschilling & Truffer, 2014)。因此，可以指出，卡塔爾的問題是由國際足聯在與卡塔爾國家和政府機構互動時所假定的權威權利所驅動的。儘管國際足聯曾聲稱，它正在與卡塔爾機構就解決該國勞工問題進行談判，但並沒有看到實際進展(Rojek, 2014)。因此，國際足聯在一開始就注意到了僱傭移民工人的規則和規範。因此，通過從制度理論的社會視角分析整個問題，可以很容易地指出，缺乏管理行動，形成了國際足聯最近的程序。
Institutional theory states that any type of institute including business organisations is part of a social structure. In other words, institutional structures follow certain guidelines and norms that are built upon the ideas of how interactions with external and internal forces might be affected (Suddaby, 2015). As such, there are various perspectives within institutional theories that understand the involvement of each of the various factors including individuals, organisations, government bodies and others to be affected by institutional relationships and norms.
In this regard, the recent investments that have been made by FIFA in Qatar ahead of the 2022 version of the World Cup event can be noted. The labourers are subjected to work for inhuman hours mostly in return for very low pays. Experts have noted that the owners and the employers in this regard somewhat assume the role of pseudo masters where these workers are being made to work as slaves (Henderson, 2014). What also adds to their problems is the exit VISA that they are required to obtain in order to leave Qatar. Moreover, these workers majority of who are migrants are not allowed to form any kind of unions.
From the social perspective in institutional theory, this issue can be analysed. The social perspective notes that the institutional actors notably the owners in this regard are empowered to act in certain ways because of the interactions within the networks (Fuenfschilling & Truffer, 2014). Therefore, it can be pointed out that the issues in Qatar are motivated by the authoritative entitlement that FIFA had assumed while interacting with the state and government bodies in Qatar. While FIFA had claimed that it has been in talks with the Qatar agencies to address the issues surrounding the labours in the country, no actual development has been noted (Rojek, 2014). As such, the ways in which the rules and norms of employing migrant workers could have been noted by FIFA at the very start. Therefore, by analysing the whole issue from the social perspective of institutional theory, it can be readily pointed out the lacks in management actions that have shaped FIFA’s recent proceedings.
In considering the issues, the fraud and bribery and the exploitation of the migrant workers in Qatar, the decisions of managers and leaders should be noted. While lacks in governance frameworks have been noted to have impacted the bribery issue, the absence of any employment policy for migrant workers has led to the condition of those working in Qatar. Both the issues therefore, point to the faults of management body and leaders of FIFA.
