The issue of doping has been the most widely discussed problem in sports ethics and is one of the most prominent issues across sports studies, the sports sciences and their constituent disciplines. This book adds uniquely to that catalogue of discourses by focusing on extant anti-doping policy and doping practices from a range of multi-disciplinary perspectives (specifically ethical, legal, and social scientific).

With contributions from a world-class team of scholars and legal practitioners from the UK, Europe and North America, the book explores key contemporary issues such as:

  • sports medicine
  • international doping policy
  • the whereabouts system
  • the criminalization of doping
  • privacy rights, gene doping and ethics
  • imperfection in doping test procedures
  • steroid use in the general population.

Doping and Anti-Doping Policyin Sportoffers an important critique of contemporary anti-doping policy and is essential reading for any advanced student, researcher or policy maker with an interest in this vital issue.
