Corruption in sport
Corruption in sports organizations has been well documented by journalists and academics in the international context. Corruption in sport has multiple manifestations, ranging from harassment by leaders and/or coaches, bribes, doping, abuse of power, and match-fixing. These problems have produced a crisis of trust, affecting the integrity of the sport, and putting its educational value at risk. It would be awful and irreversible for the sport to keep this happening while we keep quiet. We encourage people who belong to this industry to raise our voice.
Why Transparency in Sport is Important?
Transparency refers to the "degree of openness in the transmission of information" (Ball, 2009). Transparency allows external actors to supervise the functioning of an organization and, therefore, reduce the likelihood of opportunistic behavior. The control procedures are fundamental to avoid the concentration of power and ensure that decision-making is solid, independent and free of undue influence.
Do you want to work with us?
A public policy usually emerges from the government, which has the capacity to distribute, regulate and re-distribute (Lowi, 1964). However, public policy can also emerge from the actors, who present their needs to the government. Public policy is an aspiration, but it is also action.
