2018 Sporting Chance Principles on Sport and Human Rights

23rd June 2018

Author - Centre for Sport and Human Rights

The Sporting Chance Principles on Sport and Human Rights were originally proposed by the U.S. Department of State, the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) in October 2016. The Principles aim to underpin the common goal of ensuring that human rights are central to mega-sporting events throughout their lifecycle. The current version was created in 2018 to coincide with the launch of the Centre for Sport and Human Rights and to widen the remit of the Principles beyond mega-sporting events. 

All stakeholders are invited to reference the Principles, and expressions of support or endorsement are welcome.
