The presentation will address the events that led to the FIFA Scandal. How have the FIFA and the various state authorities reacted? How did the FIFA Scandal influence the world of sports? The IOC and the international sports organisations are now eager to introduce education tools, reporting mechanisms and ethic codes in order to prevent unethical behaviour, to identify integrity issues at an early stage and to impose tough sanctions when such issues must be adjudicated.
