We have a unique governance structure and take seriously a commitment to exemplify our values through our governance, including by publishing as many of our policy documents as we can.
The Centre for Sport and Human Rights group comprises Centre pour le Sport et les Droits de l'Homme (a non-profit Swiss Association domiciled at Rue Baylon 2bis, 1227 Carouge), its subsidiary Centre for Sport and Human Rights Limited (a registered charity with the Company Number 11422595, Charity Number 1187647, and registered address at 19c Commercial Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN21 3XE, UK) and the charity’s representative office in Geneva. The charity is our operating entity so its address should be used for contracts and invoices. Our office is located at Maison Internationale de l'Environnement 2, Chemin de Balexert 7-9, 1219 Châtelaine, Geneva.
Our objectives are set out in our primary governing document – our Swiss Articles of Association, lodged with the Geneva Register of Commerce. Our Swiss Articles are consistent with our subsidiary charity’s UK Articles of Association, available at Companies House.
Our policy framework is primarily set out in two main policy documents which we continually seek to improve and strengthen - the current versions both are available here:
