Event description

Description

In recent years, many sports have been rocked by integrity scandals -some of them discovered by whistleblowers. Whilst sport governing bodies appear to be starting to take whistleblowing more seriously, much more can be done to implement appropriate and transparent legal processes and protections for whistleblowers across sport thereby identifying and addressing integrity issues at an early stage. Although there exists some particular obstacles in sport teams to promote sportspeople to whistle the blow.
