Representatives of affected groups, governments, sports bodies, trade unions, sponsors, NGOs, broadcasters, National Human Rights Institutions, and intergovernmental organisations will gather in Paris at UNESCO, the UN’s lead agency for Physical Education and Sport, under the backdrop of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Hosted by the new Centre for Sport and Human Rights in partnership with UNESCO and the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB), this year's Forum will cover a diversity of geographies and issues including child safeguarding, athletes’ rights, worker safety, fan monitoring, media freedom, and community wellbeing.
