The White Paper 22/10/2016

Competition Manipulation Task Force Only six months after WDSF President Lukas Hinder first announced his plan to create a task force to develop the strategies for the fight against competition manipulation and other acts of corruption in DanceSport, a first publication is released.

"Combat Competition Manipulation | White Paper" was authored by the members of the Task Force to serve as the point of departure and the first reference in a process that will take time to complete. In his foreword, President Hinder writes what will need to happen for the process to have any chances to succeed in the long term.


If it is to achieve anything, this paper should trigger reflections on the part of the reader that dare to put in question the validity of some of the axioms in a century-old history of something that was considered anything but sport, but that now aspires to be a serious contender for inclusion into the Olympic Games.
