the cover of a sport for development handbook
This report examines how human rights can be protected in sport and through sport.

There is increasing recognition that sport and recreation is a fundamental human right and of the contribution sport can make in furthering the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. However, there is less understanding of the obligations of states towards people affected by the conduct of sport, sports organisations and sports businesses.

This report examines how human rights can be protected in sport and through sport. It provides guidance on how states can meet their human rights obligations through sport to contribute to peaceful and inclusive sustainable development. In doing so, the vision to maximise the contribution of sport to sustainable development can be advanced through investment in building effective, accountable, accessible and inclusive sport; through investment in sport that promotes peaceful and inclusive sustainable development; and through ensuring sport provides justice for all people connected to it.
