This White Paper maps out various means of access to remedy in a sport-related context, including mechanisms within selected sports bodies and institutions, as well as judicial and non-judicial mechanisms, and identifies current gaps in dealing with human rights-related issues.
Specific dispute resolution mechanisms exist in the context of international sport.
In some cases, they address human rights issues such as the right to a fair trial. However, they have not been designed to address all the human rights-related issues that may arise from mega-sporting events - be it human rights issues within sports events themselves, or human rights impacts related to the organisation and holding of sports events. On the other hand, a range of other mechanisms exist which complement sports-related ones, including judicial mechanisms, such as national courts and tribunals, as well as a range of non-judicial mechanisms.
