Subject: Protection of children and vulnerable adults in sport

In response to the increasing number of reported cases of abuse in sports around the world, and reflecting a global commitment to try and prevent such cases, there have been calls for a new international entity to be established to help manage cases of abuse of children and vulnerable adults in sport.

To that end, FIFA has publicly announced the launch of a consultation process involving sports organisations, intergovernmental authorities, governments and specialist agencies with the aim of establishing an independent, multi-sport, multi-agency international entity to help manage cases of abuse in sport. The initiative reflects a global commitment to help prevent abuse in sport, to support victims and to prosecute perpetrators.

  1. What has the Commission done so far in this area?
  2. Does it recognise and support the added value provided by the establishment of a new international entity?
  3. What concrete steps is it planning to take to support this project?
