The Conference is organised as part of the Macolin Roadmap process to strengthen States’ response capacity to specific difficulties they encounter in organising the fight against manipulation of sports competitions. To this end, the Macolin Convention fosters harmonised measures enabling ministries, together with all other public and private stakeholders, to act at three complementary levels ensuring a long-term coherent approach:
- Fostering a national integrated approach to dealing with sports manipulations and associated corruptions;
- Developing national co-operation networks involving key actors: public authorities (including Ministries and related public agencies, law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, judiciary, betting regulatory authorities), sport movement, and betting industry;
- Participating in international coordinated mechanisms to protect integrity of sport and combat corruption in sport.
These three levels of actions will be subject of a series of “thematic workshops” involving members of the National Platforms and key national stakeholders. Joint priorities will be identified for implementation as part of the “Macolin Roadmap 2018-2020”.
