Governance in Anti-Doping: How to meet the Challenges

Press Release

10th May 2021

Join Richard McLaren, Akaash Maharaj, Adam Pengilly, David Howman and other leading international Experts for the digital international Symposium on Governance Matters in Anti-Doping.

During the past years' intense international debate, the importance of good governance in anti-doping organisations has often been highlighted.

In order to shed new light on the realities of anti-doping, Play the Game has partnered up with athlete groups, anti-doping agencies, and academic researchers to carry out a project entitled "National Anti-Doping Governance Observer: Benchmarking Governance in NADOs (NADGO)" with support from the European Union’s Erasmus+-programme.

The project aims at assisting and inspiring NADOs to raise the quality of their governance and promote independent practices free from conflicts of interests.

After more than two years of research and cooperation, the results of NADGO are now ready to be presented and discussed at an online symposium organised by NADA Germany, iNADO and Play the Game:

Digital International Symposium on NADO Governance
on 18 – 19 May 2021 from 2 pm – 4:30 pm (CET) each day

Besides the presentation of the outcomes of the research project the symposium will feature a number of well-known speakers from the world of anti-doping. Among those are David Howman, who will talk about independence in anti-doping. Adam Pengilly will discuss the role of athletes in governance structures with other notable athletes. Richard McLaren will together with Michael Ask and Akaash Maharaj highlight the issue of WADA’s governance reform.
