The International Olympic Committee took two further steps towards the realization of human rights at the time of the Rio Olympics, establishing anti-discrimination protections for LGBT and creating the first-ever Refugee Olympic Team. But other serious challenges remain, especially with respect to other aspects of gender equity and the rights of workers and citizens in host cities.
