What’s Needed to Safeguard Integrity?

The Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA) was established January 31 at a founding general assembly in London. The organisation has developed a set of universal standards to help improve governance and prevent corruption in sport. The previous day, I attended SIGA’s Sport Integrity Forum, where a speaker said the fight against corruption is where the one against doping was 20 years ago. The latter battle led to the creation of the World Anti-Doping Agency, with sports bodies and governments coming together as actual partners in that organisation and plenty of muscle to pursue and punish wrongdoers. Do you think fighting corruption in sport needs a WADA-type organisation with power over sport and governments involved? Do you think that can happen?
