Study Visit 4 UK
This visit was the fourth and last study visit in the project calendar. Azerbaijan, Latvia and Georgia were selected from among the candidate countries and key stakeholders from each of these countries (LEA, minstries of sport and justice, betting regulatory authorities) visited the UK National Platform in order to experience in-depth an example of a national platform under the CoE convention. They were also able to exchange with each other (nationally and transnationally) and this was a first opportunity for many not only to meet different country 'homologues' but also the relevant actors within the same country. This follows on from the regional seminars from earlier in the project. There was also a meeting with the operational platform,the Sports Betting Integrity Forum, at which the activities of the Council of Europe Conventions Unit were presented and more synergies were created.
