The Centre for Sport and Human Rights and the Asser Institute are organising a training programma on ‘Sport and human rights’ which will adopt a human rights lens to sport governance and address freedom of speech, the rights of athletes, and access to remedy. The programme brings together the latest in academic research with practical experiences from working in the field in an interactive package, fostering productive exchanges between the speakers and participants. Theoretical knowledge will be complemented by exposure to hands-on know-how.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn from experts from the Asser Institute, the Centre for Sport and Human Rights, and high-profile external speakers from both academia and practice. Topics addressed in this summer programme include:

- The emergence of the sport and human rights discussion/movement;

- The integration of human rights in the governance of sport;

- The protection of athletes’ rights;

- Access to remedy for sport-related human rights harms.
