FIFA Human Rights Advisory Board releases update


FIFA Human Rights Advisory Board releases update on advice to FIFA.

The FIFA Human Rights Advisory Board has been closely tracking FIFA’s progress to meet the recommendations to implement decent work standards in the preparation for the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia and evaluation of the bids for the FIFA World Cup 2026.

According to the report, FIFA has stepped up its efforts to work to support a decent work monitoring system. The final bidding requirements for the FIFA World Cup 2026 included the most robust set of human rights expectations by any global sporting body to date, according to the Board.

However, the report also states that there is a need for greater transparency about the overall outcomes of the decent work monitoring system, including fatalities.
