Peter Brett Memorial Lecture 2019: Sports Integrity - 12.06.2019

The Peter Brett Memorial Lecture was presented by the Hon James Wood AO QC, Chairman of the New South Wales State Parole Authority and the New South Wales Sentencing Council on 12 June 2019.

Event synopsis

The sports industry in Australia occupies a significant part of the economy, and maintaining its integrity is essential for its viability, credibility and value for international sports diplomacy. Manipulation and corruption of events, including by organised crime and state-organised doping, have become ever more prevalent, particularly internationally. The presence of booming regulated and illegal sports betting opportunities has presented new challenges for law enforcement and sports controlling bodies, which will be considered in this address. The findings and recommendations of the 2018–2019 Review of Australia’s Sports Integrity Arrangements will be examined and explained.

Presented by The Hon James Wood AO QC.
