The Games, Legality and Pathologies Observatory
The Eurispes has established a Permanent Observatory on gaming, legality and pathologies.
With the constitution of the Observatory, the Eurispes intended to propose a centre for the production of data and knowledge on the specific themes of the field. The purpose of the Observatory is to confront, study, analyse socio-economic, cultural and juridical problems and – at the same time – organising and promoting conventions, meetings, debates, conferences among the operators of the sector Institutions and the Regulatory Authorities.
The scientific researches carried out by the Observatory can be a privileged source for the Institutions to promote legislative proposals, which are necessary for both this specific industry and for ordinary citizens.
Eurispes’ wealth of ideas, data, and analyses has constituted the Observatory’s initial capital. A capital that – due to its non-self-referential character – represents a strong point of innovation concerning other realities and is made up of methodology, third party status, independence, and credibility, including at the international level.
The driving force of the Observatory is located in its openness to the contribution and direct adhesion of the leading operators in the sector – both public and private – such as local Authorities, trade associations and police forces.
Some of the issues that the Observatory pays particular attention to are the phenomena of gambling, taxation in the gambling industry, measures to combat illegal gambling, local regulations, EU principles and relations with the European Union, money laundering and the policies implemented by industry operators.
The Observatory also proposes a critical examination of the current legislation to make an original contribution to the development of a Consolidated Act on gaming and betting.
