A New Era in Megasports? Anti-Corruption Reform and the Paris 2024 Olympics


For a quarter-century, the Olympic Games and FIFA World Cups have been plagued by nearly continuous corruption scandals. But the Paris 2024 Olympics may mark the advent of a new era in which innovative anti-corruption measures effectively manage risk and leave lasting positive impacts. This webinar will discuss such questions as:

  • How is France’s Olympic anti-corruption framework unique?
  • As minor corruption issues are flagged and investigated, will they be perceived as scandals, or as signs the system is working?
  • What does the French precedent mean for future megasport hosts such as the U.S., Australia or Saudi Arabia?
