The Committee of Ministers Recommendation No. R(92)14 to Member States on the Code of Sports Ethics.
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France).
This recommendation concerning the Code of Sports Ethics was adopted by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe in order to favorably influence the attitudes of athletes and the general public toward sport and to provide men and women in sports with a system of values that would enable them to make responsible choices when facing societal pressures. The recommendation is for member states to give their full support to the Code of Sports Ethics, disseminate the Code, and encourage the use of the Code. The text of the Code of Sports Ethics, which is provided, includes: its aims; a definition of fair play; and responsibilities of governments, sports and sports-related organizations, and individuals. The Code calls for giving fair play the highest priority by all those who, directly or indirectly, influence and promote sporting experiences for children and young people. (JDD)
