Workshop "Olympics, Agenda 2020 and Governance"

The aim of this workshop is to discuss the IOC’s Agenda 2020 initiative in terms of its governance implications. The workshop is organised in three parts: First, we would like to briefly introduce the Executive Master in European Sport Governance (MESGO), which is an executive master program designed for high-level executives within the sport industry. It is coordinated by five European universities and supported by six European team sport federations. Prof. Dr. Holger Preuss and Pedro Velazquez will provide short insights into this programme. Second, we want to have a close look on Agenda 2020 and how it affects the governance of the IOC, NOCs and Olympic Games. Third, we will form discussion groups to look into two topics in more detail..
