The Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) is an agreement between a number of Council of Europe member states (35 as of 1 January 2014) which have decided to co-operate in the field of sports policy. As an “enlarged” agreement, the EPAS is open to non-member states. It works in co-operation with relevant organisations, in particular with representatives of the sports movement.
