The need to comprehensively address these risks at the international level was very recently recognized with the adoption of resolution 7/8 on Corruption in Sport, by the Conference of States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption at its seventh session, held in Vienna from 6 to 10 November 2017.

The resolution represents a significant milestone in addressing corruption in sport, not least the fact that it was supported by the 183 States parties to the UNCAC. It covers a wide range of issues, including that of competition manipulation and given that it is now available in all official languages of the United Nations.
