The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) brings together Parliamentarians from all political parties with an interest in the issue. The APPG on Sport, Modern Slavery, and Human Rights’ 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 holds regular meetings about sport, modern slavery and human rights topics, and takes 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.
