Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions

The International Conference on the fight against the manipulation of sports competitions – Promotion and implementation of the Macolin Convention (Strasbourg, 20-21 September 2016) successfully highlighted the priorities to be addressed in coming months. Participants defined the general ideas and topics which will be used in order to elaborate a “roadmap”. Once finalised, it will be used as a guide to initiate tangible and co-ordinated actions. The extensive commitment of participants and other stakeholders expressing their willingness and support towards the implementation of the “roadmap” will provide targeted assistance to national authorities. The forthcoming phase of action (2017-2018) focusing on urgent needs for results consolidating national and international co-operation will be set up before the end of the year, and will be known as the “Macolin Process”.
