Mega-sporting events must not undermine human rights

Mega sporting events like the Olympics and FIFA World Cup have great potential promoting good on and off the field of play, but there needs to be guidelines for organizers, host countries and businesses to ensure that such events do not undermine human rights.
“There needs to be a framework that is bigger than the event, that guarantees that there are indeed global rules that cover how these events are hosted,” said Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation.
Burrow made her statement during the fourth UN Forum on Business and Human Rights, a three-day conference which brought together more than 2,000 participants to discuss the intersection of human rights and business.
