For quite some time, the FIFA World Cup has been linked to Human Rights violations. However, forced evictions and housing rights violations seem to occur more severely in developing countries which host the International sporting event. This dissertation shall attempt to show how FIFA’s Football Stadiums: Technical Recommendations and Requirements induce forced evictions in developing host nations by carrying out a study on the World Cups hosted in South Africa(2010) and Brazil(2014). Additionally, this dissertation will discuss reasons why such evictions and violation were not experienced in Germany (2006) even though all three countries had to abide by the same FIFA requirements. Finally, this paper shall contain recommendations which aim to ensure such evictions and housing right violations do not occur again.
