From fraud to bribery, from illegal betting to doping, from match-fixing to money laundering: Corruption in Sport is a global phenomenon threatening the integrity of the overall industry and posing a major challenge for today’s societies. The International Partnership Against Corruption in Sport (IPACS), a multi-stakeholder initiative to strengthen efforts to eliminate corruption and promote a culture of good governance in the field, is organising a High-level event in London (Mansion House, Walbrook, 6th December), bringing together senior figures from governments, sports bodies and international organisations to analyse sport’s vulnerability to corruption.
Deputy Secretary General Gabriella Battaini Dragoni will take part in the conference together with Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports of France, Roxana Maracineanu. Welcome remarks will be provided by the Minister for Sport and Civil Society of the United Kingdom Mims Davies.
IPACS aims at :
- Reducing the risk of corruption in procurement relating to sporting events and infrastructure;
- Ensuring integrity in the selection of major sporting events, with an initial focus on managing conflicts of interests;
- Optimising the processes of compliance with good governance principles to mitigate the risk of corruption.
