Short description

The project EventRights is a Horizon2020 mobility project that started on Jan 1, 2019. During 4 years we are part of a consortium of 9 universities around the globe and have the opportunity to visit 4 of these universities (in Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Canada and the US) for month-long research visits. All PhD-students and full-time faculty at GU are eligible to go. The project covers flights, accommodation, subsistence as well as data collection up to 3900€/month. The research agenda focus on how major (sport) events (like Olympics and FIFA world cups) can improve inclusion, diversity and human-rights in all stages of their operations.
