Chair of the EPAS Governing Board, Council of Europe

“Sport is about fair play – fair play should be evident in the board room as well as on the field. And if it goes wrong in the board room, how can one expect fair play to exist out on the field.”

Since 2013 Wendela Kuper is the chair of the Governing Board of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS), which is the intergovernmental platform of co-operation of the Council of Europe on Sports policies. Next to that she is working as a program manager sport, security and international affairs at the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport in the Netherlands. She is responsible for topics like integrity of sport, match-fixing and international affairs. Before working at the ministry Wendela had various positions in the healthcare sector at NGO’s and healthcare organisations.
