The credibility of international sport is challenged almost on a daily basis by reports on corruption and mismanagement, whitewashing, match-fixing, embezzlement and other forms of cheating. Many of the stories are directly or indirectly related to the international organisations that represent hundreds of millions of athletes.
How can we improve the governance standards of these organisations?
This is the question that Play the Game / the Danish Institute for Sports Studies is addressing in cooperation with six European universities and the European Journalism Centre in the project ‘Action for Good Governance in International Sports Organisations’ which has been funded by the European Commission.
