    This unit provides students with a critical understanding of what is meant by integrity in sport and how sports are attempting to minimise threats to sport integrity. Unit materials will include a review of relevant governance and legislative frameworks nationally and internationally, including the World Anti-Doping Program, ethical standards and anti-match-fixing strategies. Of particular interest will be work done by anti-corruption organisations, including Transparency International. The final section of the unit will involve developing solutions for lowering the risk to sport through integrity threats.

    Learning Outcomes

    On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Identify and analyse threats to sport integrity;

    2. Critically evaluate contemporary sport governance, policy and ethical practice standards;

    3. Demonstrate an advanced understanding of best practice principles of risk minimisation from other domains and how they may be innovatively applied in sport;

    4. Explain the role of the board, and senior management, in providing organisational leadership and implementing cultural change, with particular emphasis on composition and values based leadership models; and

    5. Communicate how inter-agency collaboration can be harnessed to share information, intelligence and investigative resources and assess the effectiveness of bodies such as ethics commissions and integrity units.
