A comprehensive fight against match-fixing is dependent of a series of actions that must be pursued systematically, consistently and by initiative of several actors (both individually and in a coordinated manner).
An effective integrity protection system depends on a holistic approach, with top-bottom decisions and bottom-up initiatives by each of the relevant stakeholders.
The multiple, simultaneous actions, of the concerned stakeholders, should be operationalized towards end-results by coordinating through multi-party’s platforms.
The BITEFIX Policy Recommendations builds essentially in the work developed by the project’s partners in the different work packages (WP) and in the numerous discussions, work sessions, coordination meetings, conferences and Transnational Project’s Meetings (TPMs) held along the execution of the project.
In addition, all the available literature, international instruments and key-studies have been considered and, where pertinent, referred.
The Recommendations were prepared (method) in accordance with the (i) goals and (ii) process/steps described hereunder.
The Recommendations are organised by 7 (seven) key-subjects, aiming at providing a pyramidal overview and a roadmap on challenges and main anchors to set-up a resilient anti-match-fixing system, enabling the relevant stakeholders to increase awareness and be better equipped to respond to the threats posed by match-fixing, with a focus on exchange of information and personal data protection.
Each key-subject contains a brief introductory ‘rationale’, the Recommendation(s), the key references, the key links (where pertinent), and specific recipient (where applicable).
