European Court of Human Rights' Grand Chamber will rule on Semenya case

On 6 November, the Semenya vs. Switzerland was accepted to be referred to the ECHR's Grand Chamber, following a request for referral issued by the Swiss Government.  This could mark a crucial moment for human rights within the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and in the realm of international sports governance as well as State responsibility in guaranteeing that transnational private governance schemes they support or acknowledge comply with the European Convention on Human Rights. This decision constitutes a watershed moment for human and athletes´ rights as well as for transnational sports governance.
