On the most recently published bi-weekly Bulletin of INTERPOL dedicated to “Integrity in Sport” the guidelines produced by the project “T-PREG – Training on Protected Reporting System for Professional and Grassroots Sport” were mentioned as an example of good practices.
These guidelines were produced as the result of the projects’ data collection and implementation of a pilot training, oriented to social contexts where match-fixing occurs, which showed that sport actors consider that reporting is dangerous for their career and personal life.
The guidelines on whistleblower protection in sports and optimization of EU policies related with creation, promotion, and proper use of protecting reporting systems are available for download in English and Portuguese.
