The integrity of sport is under threat and the challenges are both global and constantly evolving. Without integrity, sport is meaningless. Breaches of integrity not only damage the values of sport, but also erode its popularity, commercial viability and ultimately, its survival.
In response to these threats, the ICSS has established a specialist Sport Integrity team to provide valued integrity support across all sports and develop world-class initiatives and policy influencing research.
The ICSS Sport Integrity team works closely with key stakeholders such as UNESCO, UNODC, OECD, Council of Europe and the Sorbonne University, and believes in developing innovative education and prevention programmes. We also provide hands-on assistance to organisations tackling corruption in sport, as well as technical support in investigation, monitoring and compliance.
In May 2014, the ICSS and the Sorbonne University unveiled the ground-breaking key findings from its two-year research programme as well as guiding principles to provide sport, government and betting with practical recommendations to combat corruption in sport.
