Road to Rio: Human Rights and Labour Violations in Sport


This is the fourth article in our ‘Road to Rio’ article series. Over the coming month we will be discussing some of the key legal issues in sport, whilst looking ahead to the Rio Olympics and Paralympics this summer.

This week, Karon Monaghan QC examines the relationship between human rights and sport, considering in particular the labour law issues that arise during the construction of large sporting venues. This week’s briefing, along with the rest of the series can be downloaded here.
