7th December 2018
Author - Daniela Heerdt, Research Officer, Centre for Sport and Human Rights
A Strategic Dialogue on Remedy in the sport and human rights context was held at the Peace Palace in The Hague on 15 October 2018.
IHRB and the Centre for Sport and Human Rights invited 55 experts and representatives from inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations, international legal institutions, players unions, academia, and international sports governing bodies to discuss existing gaps in remedy in the world of sport and human rights and to identify solutions on how to fill these gaps. This meeting report reviews the key contributions and reflections emerging from the event.
A draft background paper also framed the discussions at the meeting. It was updated based on the recommendations made at the Strategic Dialogue, and published in April 2019, as a tool intended to inform ongoing discussions around the need for effective and fit-for-purpose mechanisms and how existing mechanisms can be strengthened at all levels.
