The project aims to contribute to the fight against corruption and organized crime in sports in Montenegro in accordance with standards and best practices of the European Union and the Council of Europe.
The project consisted of two activities: the research which has resulted with analysis of the risks of corruption in sport in Montenegro and with the translation, printing of the White Paper on Sport of the European Commission (White Paper on Sports), which is distributed to decision-makers in the field of sports in Montenegro.
