Sport is often seen as a motor for development, tolerance and respect – as a universally understood language which brings people together. Major sporting events are often experienced as a source of euphoria for people all over the world. But not everyone has reasons to celebrate: notably human rights violations have drastically increased around major sporting events and their venues. Together we approach this topic with the creation of a human rights dossier, which will include the following topics: human rights, equality and universality of human rights and human rights violations. In a game we will deal with the discourse about and the different perspectives on sport and human rights. Finally, we will look at various resistance movements.
