Section 7: Corruption and abuse in sport

This section seeks to address the relationship between corruption and abuse in sport and to provide information that enables Governments and sports organizations to develop a clearer understanding and greater awareness of the issue. The section does so by providing an overview of existing anti-corruption legal instruments at the domestic and international levels and by highlighting how the provisions of the Convention can be used to address abuse in sport. It then focuses on sexual abuse in sport before offering conclusions and policy considerations.
