March’s issue of World Sports Advocate

March's issue of World Sports Advocate - formerly World Sports Law Report - provides expert analysis and thought leadership on the key legal, regulatory and policy issues in the sporting world.

This month's issue has been put together to complement the Tackling Doping in Sport 2017 conference, organised by World Sports Advocate, which takes place on 8-9 March 2017 in London. Richard Pound QC, Founder of the World Anti-Doping Agency, has provided in this issue his personal opinion on the fight against doping and considers what he believes to be the key barriers that must be overcome in order to successfully implement the anti-doping system. 

In September 2016, a Bill known as the Anti-Doping Policy Implementation Bill was submitted to the Dutch Lower House. Another highlight of March's issue is a detailed look from Michiel van Dijk and Amajanti van de Beek of CMS at the privacy concerns surrounding the Bill. They assess the criticism that the Bill has received from various quarters, including the Dutch Data Protection Authority, and consider whether the Bill may cause additional problems rather than solve the privacy issues relating to athlete data.
