International Sports Law Conference | Stepping Up To The Crease : Asia's Meteoric Rise in The World of Sports
Asian athletes' unprecedented rise and acclaim in the global sporting arena accompanied with the emotions and fan-base of some 4 billion spectators has taken the sporting world by surprise. This historic decade marks a growing need for mature discourse on sports jurisprudence and harmonized governance of national and international sports federations across continents. Asian passion for sports has played a pivotal role in removing the Eurocentric lens that sports was historically often viewed through.
The emergence of 21st century socio-medico awareness in the world of sports has also brought about novel legal concepts on equality and rights under the wider umbrella of sporting rights and sports democracy, placing the notion of hat-tricks and heartbreaks into focus. The law vs. spirit of sports in the past few years has also seen Asian countries actively pushing towards establishing a more comprehensive regulatory and wholesome sports law framework, in line with international standards, dealing with a host of issues including match fixing and doping to name a few.
The theme this year will not only explore key advancements and contemporary issues in international sports law ranging from the Sandpapergate scandal, to genetic and biological variations in track and field, as well ass competing rights on freedom of speech and public interest highlighted through Australian rugby crisis, but also to discuss Asia's meteoric rise in the world of sports.
