Sports Criminology

Policy Press

Previous chapters have already touched on the existence of justice systems and laws of sport beyond the rules of the game. In this chapter these elements are specifically examined as follows: as rational/legal; as a system; as crime control versus due process; as politics; as socially constructed reality; as growth complex; as oppression and as late modernity. Corruption is a central theme, as is the ‘extra-territoriality’ of sport in seeking (and often failing) to control its athletes.

Keywords:   justice, drugs, corruption, laws of sport, crime control, due process
