Sport Conventions

Sport has a distinctive role to play as a force for social integration, tolerance and mutual understanding. It is open to all, regardless of age, language, religion, culture, or ability. It is the single most popular activity in modern society. Sport provides the opportunity to apply commonly agreed rules, to behave admirably both in victory and in defeat and to develop, not only the physical being, but also social behaviours in line with the core values of the Council of Europe : democracy, human rights and the rule of law. The action of the Council of Europe aims to fight against the negative aspects of sport - in particular violence, doping and manipulation of sports competitions - through three Conventions : the European Convention on Spectator Violence, the Anti-Doping Convention and the Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions.
