President, Association of Summer Olympic International Federations

Good governance and high ethical standards are a must for sports organisations, just as they are a must for any other sector. The last months have clearly shown that this is a pressing topic. On behalf of its 28 international member federations, ASOIF has lead the process to establish governance indicators and assessment mechanisms and to promote their use across the different sports. The objective of this undertaking is to ensure that the state of governance within sports institutions can be readily assessed publicly and monitored on an ongoing basis. This is being done in an inclusive manner, taking into account best practices and using the most appropriate available tools so as to not only establish the right processes, but to promote and ensure a CULTURE OF GOVERNANCE within all sport federations.
