The Anti-Doping Convention: an instrument of international co-operation
Doping is a hindrance to sports ethics and a threat to the health of athletes. Historically, doping is the first of the Council of Europe's concerns in sport. As early as 1967 the Committee of Ministers produced the first international legal instrument on this matter. Since then, the Organisation has continued to strengthen its commitment to eliminating doping from sport. The Anti-Doping Convention was adopted in 1989 and is followed by an additional protocol (2002).
