All-Party Parliamentary Group on Sport, Modern Slavery, & Human Rights
The APPG brings together Parliamentarians from all political parties with an interest in the issue of modern slavery and sport. The group’s mission is to find solutions to pressing human rights problems affecting large scale sporting events around the world, with a focus on three specific areas; the human rights impacts of the cycle of mega-sporting events, the impacts of the UK Modern Slavery Act on professional sport companies and discrimination in sport in all its forms.
The APPG is chaired by Alex Norris MP and Baroness Young of Hornsey, with the Secretariat provided by the UN Global Compact Network UK and the Centre for Sport and Human Rights.
The APPG holds regular meetings and over the next 24 months, the APPG plans to take evidence (written and oral) from high level, high profile sports administrators, athletes, policy makers, sports governing bodies, journalists, civil society/NGOs, and anyone else that can make a constructive contribution to the reports that will be produced.
Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions, all formal APPG meetings are suspended until further notice.
