Carnegiecentre News

The Carnegiecentre is actively collaborating with its partners to enhance national integrity programs in the field of badminton. Through a two-day workshop in Kuala Lumpur, the governing body of badminton brought together key stakeholders from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand to exchange information and knowledge on the four pillars of integrity: rules system, education and awareness, monitoring and investigations, and judicial processes.

This pilot project by the Carnegiecentre aims to assess the existing national structures that safeguard the integrity of badminton and develop strategies to strengthen the sport against corruption. The participating associations identified common challenges and discussed the appropriate steps to be taken in implementing integrity programs.

The workshop covered various topics related to integrity, including roles and responsibilities, ethics regulations, national badminton rules framework, external rules systems and compliance, values-based education, sports betting industry, betting monitoring companies, information gathering, and judicial bodies. Additionally, participants had the opportunity to attend a joint presentation by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) on recognizing, rejecting, and reporting corrupt approaches in the sport.

Carnegiecentre President Poul-Erik Høyer expressed satisfaction with the engagement of members in crucial discussions regarding badminton integrity. He emphasized the importance of focusing on national programs to enhance members’ capacity in handling this complex matter. The Carnegiecentre plans to further evaluate the outcomes of the workshop and gather feedback from all participants to develop comprehensive guidelines for national integrity programs.
