Mapping Accountability and Remedy Mechanisms for Sport

Report, 22 April 2019

By Daniela Heerdt, Research Officer, Centre for Sport and Human Rights

In late 2018 the Centre for Sport and Human Rights and IHRB hosted a Strategic Dialogue on Remedy in the Sport and Human Rights Context in The Hague.

The event brought together leading experts and practitioners to identify practical, effective, and creative recommendations toward supporting all actors to ensure access to effective remedies for human rights abuses in sport.

A draft mapping paper was provided to inform participants' discussions, and updated based on the Strategic Dialogue to provide concrete examples and features of remedy mechanisms within sport and across the wider business landscape. This paper is 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.
