In light of the foregoing, this book will explore the legal avenues available to intersex and transgender female athletes who experience discrimination based on their gender identity and sex characteristics in sports. It will examine how they can seek legal remedies for violations of their human rights under international human rights law, and provide guidance to legal practitioners and athletes on how to access judicial or quasi-judicial bodies in such situations. This is an important topic given the increasing attention being paid to the rights of intersex and transgender individuals, and the need to ensure that they are not unfairly excluded from participating in sports competitions.
The guest speaker will be Tsubasa Shinohara, Doctor in international law at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) and Human Rights Officer at the Swiss Esports Federation. He will present his doctoral thesis defended in 2023 Paving the way for the protection of human rights in sports : The case of intersex and transgender female athletes. Tsubasa Shinohara's discussant will be Franck Latty, Professor of Law at Université Paris Nanterre (France) and Chairman of the French Branch of the International Law Association.
