7 Nordic and Baltic countries at the 3rd Regional Seminar

The Council of Europe and EU (DG HOME AFFAIRS) Joint Project ‘KEEP CRIME OUT OF SPORT (KCOOS)’ 3rd regional seminar follows hot on the heels of the second in Zagreb, Croatia, this time in Copenhagen at the House of Sport, in collaboration with the Danish Anti-Doping Agency and Ministry for Sport.  It brings together representatives from law enforcement and justice, ministries, betting operators, betting regulatory authorities and the sport movement from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden. This seminar also comes not long after the recent international conference on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions held in Strasbourg (France) at the Council of Europe Headquarters on 20-21 September 2016, at which all of the abovementioned countries were also present.
Project KCOOS is the operational aspect of the 2014 Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions adopted by the Council of Europe, which is currently open to signatures and ratifications worldwide. The first phase kicked off with questionnaires from various relevant stakeholders from 47 EU and Council of Europe Member States. This has provided the project with sound input for the seminars, which will focus on establishing and running national platforms, exchanging of information and building trust between various stakeholders nationally and internationally. 
Now the 2-day seminar, the third out of 5 scheduled to take place this year within the project, will include a number of working sessions for the participants as a first step towards finding solutions to long-standing challenges. The regional seminar will also welcome speakers and moderators from Europol, GLMS and Sportradar. 
This seminar will work off the back of the results from the first two regional seminars as well as the recent conference and will feed into the last two regional seminars which will take place in Bucharest and in Athens, in Autumn 2016. The work will culminate in the publication of a practical how-to guide on implementing measures to fight sports manipulations as well as to provide supporting information for decision makers at the upcoming Conference of sports ministers in Budapest in November 2016.
