The UN Office on Drugs and Crime has published (in several languages) its Global Report on Corruption in Sport which reveals the staggering scale, manifestation, and complexity of corruption and criminal networks in sport at international and national levels.  The report breaks down an extensive range of issues, analysing the role of illegal betting, competition manipulation, abuse in sport, and the susceptibility of major sporting events to corruption, and the involvement of organised crime, among others.  It also highlights the changing landscape of sport and its relation to corrupt practices, the existing initiatives to tackle the problem, issues related to detecting and reporting wrongdoing, as well as how existing legal frameworks can be applied to address corruption within this area. The Global Report also sets out policy considerations to help address these issues.
