This volume contains the basic documents on the ‘administration of justice’, i.e., the law on disputes and disciplinary action, in the international sporting world. Included are the Statutes of the Court of Arbitration for Sport, its Rules for the resolution of Disputes during the Olympic Games and its Mediation Rules.
The following categories of rules concerning the international Olympic Sports federations are reproduced in the relevant section: arbitral and disciplinary rules in the statutes, constitutions, bye-laws and general regulations; special arbitral and/or disciplinary rules and regulations; disciplinary rules that are embodied in the international competition regulations of the international federations; and disciplinary rules in the ‘laws of the game’ per sport.
This collection of documents is a timely and welcome contribution to enhancing the accessibility of basic texts on international sports law, and provides an invaluable source of reference for sports officials, legal practitioners and the academic world.
This publication is realised within the framework of the international sports law project of the T.M.C. Asser Institute in The Hague, The Netherlands, and with the cooperation of the International Olympic Committee
