Protecting sports integrity : sport corruption risk management strategies

Student thesis: By Publication


Doping, match-fixing and corruption are challenges to the integrity of sport. Rather than
imagining that there is a single “magic wand” solution, drawing on lessons from other industries
and contexts, the culture of corruption rife in both Olympic and professional sports can instead
be tackled through a range of tools. Inspired by the idea of “moral repair”, and the Ethics of
Care approach, a number of risk reduction strategies, including: engaging in collaborative
partnerships with law enforcement, strengthening legislative and regulatory frameworks,
prioritising athlete welfare and supporting good governance, including promoting gender
equality and ethical leadership, have been outlined
