Safe Sport International Conference

First International Conference - 6-7 April 2018


Fri, 04/06/2018 to Sat, 04/07/2018



There has been a recent and rapid growth in awareness among sports federations, scientists and athlete advocates of the damaging personal and organisational impacts of violence (harassment and abuse) to athletes.

There is increasing recognition that violence threatens not only the ethical and social basis of sport but also the physical, emotional and mental health of the athlete. Rights violations of concern include: sexual, physical, psychological abuse and neglect.

Safe Sport International (SSI) is holding its inaugural conference to address research evidence, policy responses, preventive strategies and the growing demand for safe sport practice to secure sport as a place of safety for all athletes.
