Good Governance Implementation in ju-jitsu PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 27 May 2016 12:39

siggsLjubljana, 26.5.2016. One of the areas of interest and focus in ju-itsu on international level (and sport in general) is good governance. Promoting and encouraging from IOC questions of good governance has become (from many aspects) main topic in discussion what we are and what we want to be. JJIF committed us to follow principles of good governance - and JJEU is acting in this direction - timing is crucial, especially now, when JJEU will start a new episode with new board, when another change of statutes is at hand and when striving to be organised by the principles of good governance but yet again to maintain our identity and not forget the basic principles of ethics and conduct.

Mr Robert Perc, JJEU General Secretary and a candidate for JJEU President at upcoming elections in Ghent, Belgium, participated at the Strategic Workshop on Good Governance Sport. Workshop was organised by National Olympic Committee of Slovenia (OCS) and opened by Mr Bogdan Gabrovec, the President of OCS.

The guest of honour with introduction speech was Mr Janez Kocijancic, Honourable President of OCS and Vice President of European Olympic Committees (EOC). Mr Kocijancic stressed on the principle of transparency, which means the public availability of data, preventing abuse and democracy, which calls for a greater athletes’ participation on decision making process. An important principle is ethics, without which sport as such is nothing. Many dangers goes with sport, like doping, match fixing, violence in different forms, racism, corruption… reason more that sports organizations should be managed in a democratic and ethical manner, where integrity, accountability, transparency and democracy must be taken into account in all areas.

Information about back numbers: You will receive the back numbers for the EOC as indicated in the previous information, so please order them as soon as possible and put them on the Gi! You will not pay for back numbers if the number of them correlates with the number of athletes. The federations who already paid JJEU will refund the amount paid for the back numbers! The basic idea behind new system is that we make organisation of the events easier but also more presentable to the public/media as it is our wish to have back numbers on all Gi’s on all events. The layout of the back numbers is prepared in a way to be valid for at least two or three years. We shall have a discussion on the subject also at the GA in Ghent (and Coach meeting).
