ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Corruption and abuse of power have been plaguing the world of sport. Scandals in federations like FIFA, the IOC and the IAAF have triggered changes in many more sport federations. Effective measures to prevent corruption and abuses of power have become a prerequisite to receive public subsidies and corporate sponsorship. Internationally renowned experts came to Batumi to present the new governance standards in sport and discuss with chess leaders.
This conference was sponsored by FIDE as an addition to the 89th Congress in cooperation with the Batumi Chess Olympiad and was organised by ChessPlus Ltd, the UK-based company which is also bringing you the London Chess Conference each December.
