Feature: Sport Law


Issue No. 64 of ICSSPE’s Bulletin provides a Special Feature on “Sport Law”. The current discourse on doping, match fixing and corruption has drawn attention to legal and disciplinary aspects of the sport system. In fact, the globalisation of sport and its legal challenges have initiated debates on new forms of governance and the relation between the autonomy of sport and the state. Reviewed by Kari L. Keskinen (Finnish Society of Sport Sciences) and Lauri Tarasti, this issue’s Special Feature refers to recent developments in national and international sport law, its limitations and perspectives.


The first article by Dimitrios P.Panaiotopoulos deals with “Sports Law & Lex Sportiva”, followed by a contribution by J.Tyrone Marcus entitled “Sports Law: A New Family Member”. The third article by Lauri Tarasti gives an insight into his “Personal Experiences in International Sports Law”, while Mike Townley explores “The Role of Arbitration in Sport, the real Legacy of Lance Armstrong”. Bárbara Schausteck de Almeida and Wanderley Marchi Júnior offer a perspective on “Olympic sport in Brazil: the Institutionalisation of Power through Law” and the section closes with an analysis of “Current Sport-related Legislation in the Slovak Republic” by Ján Junger and Marcel Nemec.


The Current Issues section includes an article by Margaret Talbot on “Physical Activity in Public Health Policy – Evidence of a Paradigm Shift?” as well as a review by Justin Peterson and Darlene A. Kluka on Jeff Ruffolo’s book Inside the Beijing Olympics. Moreover, it contains a news overview of ICSSPE’s recent activities, outputs and upcoming events.
