The Pool of European experts on sexual violence in sport, is a means for peer-learning, capacity building and fostering exchanges between those who have a role to play in combating and preventing sexual violence towards children in the field of sport.

 

 

It brings together policy-makers, practitioners, researchers/academics and victim support specialists, selected through a restricted call for applications.
