International human rights law has changed sports and forced them to address problems they used to ignore. Athletes now have a bigger voice to talk about fairness, which led to some companies dropping out of the Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
It underpins sport's duty to uphold the rights of Indigenous Peoples, including the right for First Nations to make their own decisions in Australia. It also affects Australia's future as an independent country.
Former Socceroo and human rights activist Craig Foster will talk about how Australia can include everyone and treat them fairly by respecting their rights.
