The purpose of this paper is to pose a series of questions to NHRIs to support the Centre for Sport and Human Rights in the development of its Remedy and Accountability Strategy.

The Centre for Sport and Human Rights was launched in June 2018 as a ‘human rights organisation for the world of sport’. The Centre is the result of an alliance between governments, intergovernmental organisations, sports bodies, athletes, hosts, sponsors, broadcasters, civil society representatives, trade unions, employers and their associations, and national human rights institutions. Members of the alliance that worked together to establish the Centre have also worked together in many of the developments in sport and human rights since the adoption of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). More background on the Centre can be found at:

Work is now underway to develop a new strategy for the Centre for the period 2021-24. Currently, the draft plan is being developed in three parts:

1.     The development of the overall strategy

2.     The development of a thematic strategy on children’s rights and sport

3.     The development of a thematic strategy on accountability and remedy for abuse of human rights in sport

The below questions concern the third part, but they are of course overlapping.
