A Study On Athletes’ Attitudes Towards Human Rights In Sports


Though sports is not a fundamental right in law, it is stated by such important institutions as the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and IOC (the International Olympic Committee) that it is a fundamental right to take part in sports activities. It is essential that a convenient environment be provided and due legal regulations be introduced for those who do sports in order to gain them favorable features. Provision of these opportunities is only possible though acceptance of sports as a fundamental right and presents a new perspective on human rights in sports. The present study aims to determine athletes’ attitudes towards human rights in sports and compare them according to various variables. The participants of the study were a total of 248 athletes (university students). Out of 248, 100 were females and 148 were males. A “Scale of Attitude towards Human Rights in Sports” has been developed for data collection. The SAHRS is a scale with 29 items and 3 dimensions. The reliability co-efficient is .82 (Cronbach Alpha). The T-test and ANOVA were used to analyze the data. The current study put forth that the athletes’ attitudes towards human rights in sports were at the mid- and high levels.
