Safeguarding Sport from Corruption and Crime
UNODC’s work in the area of corruption and crime in sport was mandated by the Conference of the States Parties to the
United Nations Convention against Corruption through the adoption of two resolutions by over 180 States parties, namely:
- Resolution 8/4 on Safeguarding Sport from Corruption, adopted by the Conference at its Eighth Session, in Abu Dhabi, from
16 to 20 December 2019.
- Resolution 7/8 on corruption in sport, adopted by the Conference at its Seventh Session, in Vienna, from 6 to 10 November
These resolutions set out the key issues that need to be addressed to tackle the problem of corruption in sport and outline
the actions that States parties have committed to taking in order to do so.
