Man City, Mansour and sportswashing. An interview with Nic McGeehan.

This week’s episode focusses on the work of Human Rights researcher and reporter, Nic McGeehan. His wealth of knowledge on the Man City take-over in September 2008 hones in on the issues of governance and morality. Nic’s work with Human Rights Watch and Open Democracy highlights the paradox of perennial human rights abusers and their acceptance into the lauded platform of elite football club ownership. He was previously the Bahrain, Qatar, and United Arab Emirates researcher at Human Rights Watch and having lived in the U.A.E for a number of years is a voice to be listened regarding these matters.

I highly recommend a read of Nic’s football related articles and his work at @HRW .
