Sports Integrity in Australia and the World

Sport has been and continues to be a very important part of life in Australia, both in terms of domestic participation and international reputation. Yet, the increasing commercialisation of sport; the rapid growth in sports betting (online and offshore); match fixing and race rigging revelations; and international doping scandals, threatens sport's integrity. This talk notes that while Australia's sports integrity environment compares favourably with many other countries, the potential for serious integrity breaches remain and Australian sport needs to be vigilant, particularly in a regulatory and legal sense, to the challenges ahead.
