PEACE AND SPORT: Do they know what is IF - International Federation

IS ITF TAEKWONDO (Ung Chan group) really Sportaccord recognised IF - International Federation?
I don't think so. Probably it is only International sport organisation?

Under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco

An organization placed under Monegasque law, the Principality of Monaco gives Peace and Sport a unique framework for development so that it can accomplish its mission serenely on the basis of values that are its own: namely independence and neutrality.

The only Head of State who is a five-time Olympian and IOC member, Prince Albert II of Monaco is one of the most legitimate personalities to promote the values of Peace and Sport at such a distinguished level. His respected personality and his long-standing commitment to peace, sport and the environment guarantees the impartiality of the organisation.


"I am proud to bring my High Patronage to ‘Peace and Sport, l’Organisation pour la Paix par le Sport’ a humanist initiative that through sport, promotes a spirit of civic-mindedness, of dialogue and of acceptance necessary to ease tensions and establish peace in the world.

Confronted by major crises linked to the trauma of armed conflicts, extreme poverty or the deliquescence of social ties, we have a collective obligation, even an urgent duty, to act in order to improve the quality of life of millions of men, women and children whose suffering is a blemish on the advancement of our century.

In this uncertain world, sport and the rules of sport are a source of stability, education and integration for young people in vulnerable situations, thanks to the values of sharing, tolerance, respect and loyalty that it generates.

Since its inception in 2007, through daily action Peace and Sport has demonstrated the utility of a neutral platform capable of uniting and federating a multitude of decision-makers in politics, sport, economic and civil life around this conviction.

By fostering concertation between these actors, Peace and Sport helps to turn sport into an efficient lever to aid the emergence of sustainable peace in areas of the world that most need it, and to offer new horizons to those for whom the future seems obscure.

More than ever, confronted with the enormity of need, Peace and Sport’s action is useful and necessary.

I am convinced that this organisation, driven by a spirit of generosity and solidarity, brings vulnerable communities the possibility to surpass their differences and contribute to shape a more unified, more peaceful world, concerned with preserving the dignity of each and every man and woman."


Joel Bouzou is President and Founder of "Peace and Sport, L’Organisation pour la Paix par le Sport”.

In 1991, he founded the association “Rassemblement par le Sport (RPS)”, which encourages the social integration of young people living in the outskirts of cities through sport.

Peace and Sport was founded as an extension of RPS based on an observation and a certainty.

The observation was that governments, international organizations and major stakeholders in civil society are always looking for ways to bring about sustainable peace in regions where conflicts persist.

The certitude was that sport is a universal language in which there is one rule that unites everyone. Much more than a game, it is a tool for dialogue, brotherhood and respect that transcends political, social, racial and religious differences that are often at the heart of conflicts in this world.

Thus, in 2007 Peace and Sport was founded with the aim of taking concrete action for peace, offering actors for peace solutions based on core values generated by sport and by mobilizing the sports movement to promote peace.

An elite Pentathlete, Joel has participated in four Olympic Games (Moscow 1980, Los Angeles 1984, Seoul 1988 and Barcelona 1992) receiving the bronze medal at the 1984 Games.

In 1987, he won the title of World Champion in Modern Pentathlon.

Deeply involved in the development of his preferred sport, since 1997 Joël has been Secretary General of the International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM).

He has also been an Advisor to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco since 2006.

A French national, Joel has been awarded the Legion of Honour and the National Order of Merit. He has also been decorated with the French medal ‘Médaille d’Or de la Jeunesse et des Sports.’

In 2009 he was awarded a Honoris Causa Doctorate in Humane Letters from the University for Peace in recognition of “his unique worldwide leadership role in promoting peace and mutual understanding among different cultures, and his leadership of organizations devoted to these objectives.”

Finally, Joël Bouzou is a member of the Scientific Committee of the Sport and Citizenship Association.

He holds a Masters degree in Law and Sport Economics.
