Committee of Ministry to Member States on the European Sports Charter: Recommendation No. R(92)13.
This recommendation urges European governments to base their national policies for sport on the European Sports Charter, to invite their national sports organizations to take account of principles set out in the European Sports Charter in the elaboration of their policies, and to take steps to ensure a wide dissemination of the European Sports Charter. The European Sports Charter calls for governments to enable every individual to participate in sport and to protect and develop the moral and ethical bases of sport and the human dignity and safety of those involved in sport, by safeguarding sport, sportsmen, and women from exploitation for political, commercial, and financial gain, and from practices that are abusive or debasing, including the abuse of drugs. Articles of the European Sports Charter address the sports movement, facilities and activities, developing physical fitness and encouraging the practice of sport by young people, developing participation, improving performance, supporting top level and professional sport, human resources, sustainable development, information and research, finance, and domestic and international cooperation. The text of the European Sports Charter is appended, (JDD)
