Almanac Human Rights: a Wheeler Centre panel discussion

What is the role of sport in promoting basic human rights?

The Human Rights Law Centre along with the Wheeler Centre will be examining this question on Thursday 5 May.

We can think of society’s expectations of sports people, the ideas of equality and diversity in sport, and ideas of sporting boycotts in the face of political ideology.

Panelists will be:

– Hugh de Kretser of the Human Rights Law Centre

– Beverly Knight of Alcaston Gallery, indigenous Australian support and the first female director of Essendon Football Club

– Belinda Clark of women’s cricket and trailblazing.
