The Foundation for Global Sports Development to Host Diverse Symposium on Doping in Sport
Date:2/23/2017

On April 13, 2017, The Foundation for Global Sports Development will host a diverse symposium on “Doping in Sport: How the Culture Might Change,” in conjunction with Pepperdine University School of Law and Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP. The symposium will be held at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

Sir Philip Craven, President of the International Paralympic Committee, will provide the Keynote Presentation, which will likely include insight into his monumental decision to ban Russia from participating in the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games for allegedly violating international doping rules. Sir Philip’s decision to ban Russian athletes from competing in the Paralympics was significant as it followed the International Olympic Committee’s decision to allow Russia to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

In two afternoon panels moderated by ESPN Investigative Journalist, T.J. Quinn, leading anti-doping regulators, sports attorneys, team executives, arbitrators, journalists, and athletes will discuss their experiences, research and questions on practical, political, legal and ethical concerns related to doping, doping control, and what this means for the future of sport. To learn more about the panelists participating in the symposium please visit http://www.globalsportsdevelopment.org.

“We are incredibly honored to have Sir Philip join us for this symposium. His display of leadership during the 2016 Rio Paralympics was nothing short of courageous and I know many people are interested to learn what factors played into his decision," said Dr. Steven Ungerleider, Executive Board Member for GSD. "Some of the best minds in sports law and management will be participating in this symposium,” added GSD Executive Board Member, David Ulich. “We are eager to see what new and groundbreaking realizations surface from these discussions, which promise to be lively and engaging."
