The human rights of athletes : special issue / Galea, Natalie... [et al.]

Galea, Natalie

This edition of "Human rights defender" examines the Olympic Movement through a human rights lens. The magazine was planned to be released on time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics which was postponed due to COVID-19. With athletes taking a more public stand as human rights defenders, the authors thought the issue was still timely.
