Integrity in Sports demands a permanent conversation, involving theory and practice within the effective regulatory framework. It refers to the integration of (external) actions with (internal) values. This includes the inherent values of sport (justice, respect, excellence, and competence); the people who intervene on it, and the roles they should represent; sports organizations and their values; and sports competitions.
The transforming power of sport and its educational function are delegitimized every time when we find mismanagement, bad governance, doping, injustice and lack of ethics in sports. Integrity in Sports seeks to protect those values by bringing the conversation to the actors of the sports movement; proposing an action plan to stakeholders; increasing the democratic participation of athletes (and women) in sports organizations; improving the accountability of organizations and sporting events; integrating regional and subnational actions that help to preserve the integrity of the sport. This project can be adopted by public and private national and international organizations, NGOs, private corporations whose mission is the promotion of sports, welfare, development, and peace. This online and face-to-face training is our platform to produce a positive change in the governance of sport in the regional and subnational context.
We believe in SAFE sport. Sustainable, Antidoping, Fair, and Ethical.

The Integrity in Sports is in the Public Agenda. According to the Kazan’s Action Plan, there is a need to unify and further develop international standards supporting sports ministers’ interventions in the field of sport integrity (in correlation with the International Convention against Doping in Sport).
This context has motivated us to act. We want to lead the translation of these agreements into a measurable and verifiable action framework, in the light of stakeholders.
We want to empower stakeholders to effectively address all policy areas related to the integrity of sport, creating synergies in prevention, education, and awareness, legislation, protection of whistleblowers and freedom of the media, exchange of information and research.
There are international references that guide this initiative such as the International Convention against Doping in Sport of UNESCO, the Council of Europe Convention on the manipulation of sports competitions and the Council of Europe Convention on an integrated approach to protection, security and services in football matches and other sporting events.
