The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian t.me/Roscongress, English – t.me/RoscongressDirect, and Spanish t.me/RoscongressEsp. Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Sport is a Right
1 July 2022
12:15—13:45
Russian sport is going through a difficult time due to external pressure and isolation. A striking example of unsportsmanlike behaviour was the banning of Russian Paralympians, tennis players, soccer players, chess players, and even cyberathletes from participating in tournaments. Mass exclusion of Russian athletes from international competitions can drag on and result in their exclusion from the next Olympic Games. Discrimination, marginalization, and other kinds of restrictions are forms of violation not only of athletes' rights, but also of the human right to work. Obviously, this threatens the fundamental principles of sport. The session is expected to discuss relevant problems of sport, affecting the fulfilment of people’s right to sport. Particular attention will be paid to the legal aspects of sports development, legal protection and guarantees for participants in both Russian and international sporting events. What will Russian sport look like in the near future and what role can the law play in its fate? What are the main problems of implementing the right to sport? How and when will Russian sports be internationally represented again?
