Human rights protection in Europe in the context of sports organisations' disciplinary and arbitration procedures - Good practice handbook No. 5 (2018)
Since the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) was set up in 2007, its major priority has been to address the current challenges facing sport in Europe. To this end, it has developed a pan-European programme involving a variety of stakeholders from public authorities and the world of sport.
This collection of good practice handbooks is an illustration of current policies and practices throughout Europe. Its aim is to disseminate and share positive experiences highlighting the potential of sport for promoting the Council of Europe’s fundamental values of human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
