Physical Education and Sport at School in Europe maps the state of play of physical education and sport activities at school in 30 European countries. The report covers primary and lower secondary education and provides an insight into the following topics: national strategies and large-scale initiatives where they exist, the status of physical education in national curricula and steering documents, recommended annual taught time, pupil assessment, teacher education, extracurricular activities and planned national reforms.
This Eurobarometer survey will contribute to providing some of the data to support the developing policy framework for promoting sport and physical activity.

A European project : new results
This study comes 17 years after the Bosman ruling which transformed transfer practices in professional sport and 11 years after the informal agreement between FIFA, UEFA and the European Commission which, to a large extent, established the new FIFA rules on transfers. The report examines transfer rules adopted in other sports or in other continents and which are aimed at promoting fairer competition.
The purpose of this study is to illustrate how corruption in sport, specifically match-fixing, is covered in national criminal law. To this end, an extensive survey with national ministries in the 27 Member States, sporting organisations and betting operators was carried out.
