Our history

Transparency in sports arises after a master's thesis at the National University of Seoul.

After studying an Olympic Masters in Sports Management at the National University of Seoul, a laureate thesis on the Governance of elite sport in Colombia encouraged us to start this project.

After exploring the management of the elite sport for more than 10 years through academic research in Colombia and in South Korea, we saw the opportunity to fill a gap in the sports systems of Colombia and Latin America.

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.

We believe in a decentralized National Sports System, guided by the decision-making based on evidence, in the strategic management of human resources and the participation of multiple stakeholders in the national and subnational sports administration.

Our team

We work in network adding people and entities interested in the good governance of the sport.

We formed a work team with people in Bogotá, Medellín, Seoul, and New Delhi.
