Project Details

What We Need
  • A document outlining recommended sources of research including databases and websites, along with research tips for how to best stay on top of your industry information and citation help
Additional Details

Review the Centre's resource collection on the website and develop a plan for capturing and categorizing latest research on a regular basis.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a section on our website for resources, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a list of those resources in Excel, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,848 , allowing us to focus on our main goal to help those adversely affect by sport, through our work programs such as children, remedy, mega-sporting events, regional work, etc.

As part of our mission we want to share knowledge and build capacity regarding the integration of sport and human rights. A resources hub on relevant publications and research in the field can help achieving this mission. Ideally, we want to create and maintain an online sport and human rights library for researchers and other people interested in finding more information.

Our Mission

The Centre's role is to work towards a world of sport that fully respects human rights through collective action and through the promotion of the Sporting Chance Principles.

What We Do

Sport has the power to be a uniting force for good in society in ways little else can. By harnessing this power and acting collectively, the diversity of actors involved in the world of sport have the potential to deliver concrete impacts for those affected by sport.

Through our Advisory Council, the Centre brings together an unprecedented alliance of intergovernmental organisations, governments, sports bodies, athletes, hosts, sponsors, broadcasters, civil society representatives, trade unions, employers and their associations, and national human rights institutions. These organisations have come together united in the understanding that there is a generation of work to be done to fully align the world of sport with the fundamental principles of human dignity, human rights, and labour rights.

The Centre performs a range of activities under a framework of sharing knowledge, building capacity, and increasing accountability. The Centre's work is rooted in normative international human rights standards. In fulfilling this mandate, the Centre is committed to being independent, principles-based, inclusive, diverse, collaborative, accessible, and trusted.

The Centre is an impartial convenor and a safe space for aligning multi-stakeholder action. Within all activities there is an explicit focus on supporting governments, host actors, sports governing bodies, international federations, and companies. Each has a unique role to play in promoting human rights and implementing their duties and responsibilities to: prevent harms in line with the Sporting Chance Principles, take a clear cross-cutting focus on strengthening access to effective remedies for affected groups, and communicate transparently on progress towards full implementation.

The Centre's work is framed to be responsive to key stakeholders affected by sport - the athletes, communities, workers, volunteers and officials, journalists, and fans - as well as cross-cutting groups that may have particular vulnerabilities - namely, children, human rights defenders, women and girls, LGBTI+ people, people with disabilities, migrants, minority and ethnic groups, indigenous people, and historically disadvantaged communities.

In prioritising action, we consider the severity and likelihood of human rights risks arising, the potential for positive change, and the opportunities to learn, raise awareness, and increase capacity.
