Summer Programme-The Governance of Sport and Human Rights

by | Aug 3, 2022

The first summer course on sports governance and human rights, which the Asser Institute is organizing in collaboration with the Centre for Sport and Human Rights and FIFPro, will run from 5-9 September in The Hague.

We focus on the evolving sport and human rights movement, from a historical and recent perspective, zooming in on a number of current challenges underlying the link of sport and human rights, such as the human rights impacts of mega-sporting events (Qatar and the upcoming women’s world cup), the rights of athletes in relation to freedom of expression or abuse, remedies for sport-related human rights harms, including the NCP procedures, and more. We have invited speakers from both academia and practice to ensure that participants can benefit from the right balance between theoretical knowledge and practical experience, and are proud to be welcoming representatives from FIFA, the KNVB, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, a representative from Caster Semenya’s legal team, and many more brilliant speakers. It will be an interactive programme, with exercises such as drafting a human rights policy and more.
