Project information

The Integrity of Sport and the Hosting of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games

Working in collaboration with the University of Tsukuba and Japanese Sports Council, Colette is addressing the concepts associated with sporting integrity (including sporting governance, Olympic values and education, match fixing and corruption) and the policy initiatives which seek to promote positive elements of integrity or tackle aspects of integrity failure. Colette's work focuses on the extent to which Olympic preparations have been employed to leverage enhancement of integrity and enhancement of governance in the Japanese Olympic system in the preparation period for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and to consider risk factors in preparation for, and provision of the 2020 Games.
