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

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. This draft "Mapping Remedy Mechanisms for Sports-Related Human Rights Grievances" is now available to download for consultation.
