Sport, Civil Liberties and Human Rights

by Richard Giulianotti

Part of the Sport in the Global Society Series

Sport, Civil Liberties and Human Rights Synopsis

What is the relationship between sport and human rights? Can sport protect and enhance the human rights of competitors and sport workers? Can it also undermine those rights? These topical issues are among the many that are explored in this groundbreaking volume which analyzes how sports both contribute to, and undermine the human rights of participants, spectators and workers. The papers are written by esteemed academics whose work is at the cutting-edge of this burgeoning area of study. Experts from around the world have contributed to this important work, and examine controversial issues such as: * sexual harassment * racism * freedom of movement * sport as popular protest. This book was previously published as a special issue of Sport in Society.
