Sport, Broadcasting and Human Rights - Guiding Questions

22 June 2018

All companies have a responsibility to respect human rights when they carry out their business. The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights guide companies in how to meet their responsibilities, and due diligence is a critical component.

This tool, "Sport, Broadcasting and Human Rights - Guiding Questions", is intended to help broadcasters identify and, if necessary, mitigate any potential human rights impacts that may occur when broadcasting a sporting event. It builds on the White Paper "Broadcasters and Human Rights in the Sports Context", which identified potential risks to people and their rights arising from broadcasting a sporting event. 

This tool can be used alongside existing planning and risk processes, such as health and safety assessments, and is intended to be practical, flexible, and to help identify ways to address the particular risks identified.

The companion tool – 'Sponsors, Sport and Human Rights – Guiding Questions’ - can also be used by any business involved in the sponsorship of a sporting even to prompt the identification of human rights issues to consider at the earliest stages of developing a sport sponsorship relationship, and in the sponsor agreement itself.
