International Partnership against Corruption in Sport (IPACS) establishes multi-stakeholder taskforces to tackle major challenges to sports integrity
15/12/2017 - The International Partnership against Corruption in Sport (IPACS), a multi-stakeholder platform, agreed to set up three taskforces to help tackle corruption in sport at its meeting at the OECD in Paris on 14 to 15 December 2017 [summary of discussions].
Representatives from international sports organisations, governments, and inter-governmental organisations agreed that these taskforces will focus on the following priority areas:
Each multi-stakeholder taskforce will develop specific initiatives such as checklists and pilot projects and report back to the IPACS working group during its next meeting scheduled for June 2018 at the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. A first high-level annual meeting is foreseen for late 2018.
IPACS was launched at the IOC’s International Forum on Sport Integrity (IFSI) held in February 2017. It is a multi-stakeholder platform with the mission “to bring together international sports organisations, governments, inter-governmental organisations, and other relevant stakeholders to strengthen and support efforts to eliminate corruption and promote a culture of good governance in and around sport”, as agreed at IPACS’ first working group meeting in June 2017.
