The Centre for Sport and Human Rights organised a webinar in May 2022 to discuss the role major stakeholders, namely football associations, tournament organisers FIFA and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, and hotel brands, can play to drive collective action ahead of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
