We are bringing the human rights in and through sport agenda to policymakers through a number of avenues. One way is submitting information to public consultations in the human rights, sustainable development, and sport policy domains. Below you can explore examples of our submissions made at both national and international levels. Some of these, such as the submissions on Ireland's CRPD and UPR reports, are examples of engaging with the UN human rights reporting mechanisms as outlined elsewhere on this website. We hope these submissions will be of interest to you and may also serve as examples of how to prepare your own submissions on human rights and development in and through sport.
