Sports Criminology

Policy Press

This chapter returns to boxing, making connections to sex work and the case R V Brown on the limits of what a person might consent to in the bedroom or the ice hockey rink. It returns to what a sports criminology might be and finds that since both sport and crime are social constructions it might be doubly impossible. Might drug use be seen as part of sport and the surveillance of athletes a human rights issue? Criminology might offer to sport different ways forward or new perspectives. Sport offers criminology the opportunity to study the impact of changes in law and enforcement.
