31st January 2017

Author - MSE Platform

This White Paper considers the extent to which established sources provide a relevant, timely, consistent, accessible and credible basis for evaluating human rights risks in multiple countries at one time, and as a basis for due diligence by sports governing bodies and host actors.

The paper analyses data from UN and ILO public sources on human rights and labour standards and assesses the extent to which these sources can serve as a basis for preparing “country human rights briefs” on mega-sporting event candidate and host cities/countries.
