KNVIR: Shaping International Accountability Around Mega-Sporting Events

4 November, 2022 @ 1:30 pm 5:30 pm

This year the Royal Netherlands Society of International Law dedicates its Annual General Meeting to legal questions that arise in relation to mega- sporting events, such as:

  • Who is responsible for violations of national or international law? The government putting out the tender, the organisers (IOC, FIFA), or the companies contracted to build the stadiums, roads, and hotels? How are these responsibilities divided up and how can different actors be held accountable?
  • What should be done for victims, in particular labour migrants, but also for victims whose property is expropriated or who are subject to “administrative detention”?
  • What should be done in the future to prevent repetition as much as possible? What are the shortcomings of current legislation and how can we, practically speaking, close the (major) gaps between theory and practice?

If you wish to attend the meeting, you are required to register by sending a message to contact@knvir.org no later than Monday 31 October 2022.
