With a view to ensuring integrity in the selection of Major Sporting Events (MSEs), with an initial focus on managing conflict of interest, the International Partnership Against Corruption in Sports (IPACS) created a dedicated task force with the objective of building on existing standards and expertise to encourage the implementation of conflict of interest mechanisms and facilitating a common understanding amongst sport organisers, governments, and international organisations alike on what the risks are and how to manage them. The first report of Task Force 2 considers conflicts of interest which may arise in International Sport Organisations (ISOs) when a vote takes place to award the hosting rights for an MSE, and proposes appropriate measures to manage them based on international standards and good practices.
