    With the approval of the Agenda 2020 reforms, IOC President Thomas Bach cemented his own power basis. The question is if he also re-established the power of the IOC in a changing sports world. Andreas Selliaas gives a personal account from the IOC session in Monaco.

    The IOC has released the 20+20 recommendations for IOC president Thomas Bach’s 2020 Agenda that is supposed to bring about a reformed IOC. Main points in the proposals are sustainability and changes in the bidding process. Good governance is suggested being upheld via self-evaluation.
