Created in 1976, the International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport (MINEPS) is a forum that facilitates intellectual and technical exchange in the field of physical education and sport. MINEPS also serves as an institutional mechanism for a coherent international strategy in this domain.

MINEPS is the only global platform of its kind, engaging governments, intergovernmental organizations, the sport movement, academia and specialized NGOs. The outcomes and recommendations of MINEPS are continuously strengthening the educational, cultural and social dimensions of physical education and sport while guiding the implementation of effective policies and practices around the world.

Five MINEPS Conferences have been organized until 2015 (Paris - France, 1976; Moscow - Russian Federation, 1988; Punta del Este - Uruguay, 1999; Athens - Greece, 2004; Berlin – Germany, 2013). MINEPS played a major role in the development  of the International Charter of Physical Education and Sport (1978) - establishing the practice of physical education and sport as a fundamental right for all - and the creation of the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (CIGEPS). It also provided a key platform for the negotiation of the International Convention against Doping in Sport.
