COURSE: SPORTS LAW ACADEMY ON CORRUPTION IN INTERNATIONAL SPORTS
Corruption in sport is not a new phenomenon. In 388 BC, the earliest case of corruption at Olympic Games was recorded where Eupolos of Thessalia bribed three of his competitors in a fighting tournament allowing him to win a gold medal Over a period of time, cases of corrupt behaviour in sport have become more widespread reaching every part of the world and across every sport. In modern times, a number of notable cases, which were highlighted, includes the 1919 Chicago White Sox who took bribes from gamblers in the World Series, the East German doping scandal in the 1970s, where hundreds of athletes and swimmers were given ledge and a number of spot-fixing cases in performance enhancing substances without their knowledge, and a number of spot-fixing cases in Cricket since the infamous Hansie Cronje case. As sports has become more popular with a truly global audience in recent years, it often appears to become more of a target for individuals and groups of people wanting to take advantage of the lucrative nature of the industry. The legal framework to tackle and control corruption at domestic and International level are in place but academically less deliberated. While the focus of the Academy is to explore Corruption in International Sports, it will also explore other pathologies that effect International Sports i.e. Doping, Spot-fixing and issues related to Governance. For the first time the subject on corruption in international sports is being academically offered in India. The need for such Academy has become increasingly important in recent years and Corruption in International Sport is intended to provide a detailed education in the legal aspects of this topic for lawyers, sports administrators and integrity officials, law enforcement officers, policy makers and other interested people.
