Welcome to the website for the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Sport, Modern Slavery and Human Rights.

The APPG brings together Parliamentarians from all political parties with an interest in the issue. 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 Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB).

The APPG will hold 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 report that will be produced.
