Play the Game 2005
Governance in Sport - The good, the bad, and the ugly
Play the Game 2005 was the 4th world communication conference organised by Play the Game. It was a five-day conference with 85 presentations, almost 300 participants from all corners of the world, and many, many conversations, debates, questions and suggestions. The conference took place 6-10 November 2005 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Statement for Integrity and Anti-Corruption in Sport
The final session of the Play the Game 2005 conference saw Jan Borgen of the global anti-corruption coalition Transparency International present the conclusions of a working group charged with the task of preparing a declaration on countering corruption in sport.
The document, which was adopted by the Play the Game on Thursday, was drawn up because, according to conference organisers, existing ethical guidelines in sport do not effectively prevent or detect corruption, or support bodies fighting for a corruption-free environment.
