Player and referee
Conflicting interests and the 2010
FIFA World CupTM


Is a pdf file.

"This monograph explores a range of conflict of interest situations in the
context of the 2010 World Cup. The analogy captured in the title
refers to different
actors finding themselves in the position of being simultaneously ‘player’
and ‘referee’ over key decisions about, for example, tenders or stadia
location. In
other words, fair play should preside both on the field and off.
Three factors make large construction projects vulnerable to conflicts
of interest
situations and corruption. First, the sheer financial magnitude and scope
of public-funded infrastructure projects is a factor likely to
generate ethical conundrums.
20 The South African government committed itself to the investment
of billions of rands in infrastructure, logistics, communications and security"
