With a Foreword by Judge Keba Mbaye, President of the International Court of Arbitration for Sport, Lausanne, Switzerland. Mediating Sports Disputes: National and International Perspectives is the first book that deals with extra-judicial settlement of sports disputes through mediation. It reflects the growing interest in and importance of alternative dispute resolution methods for settling sports-related disputes, at the national and international levels. As sport has developed in recent years into a global business, the number of disputes has risen exponentially and the need for alternative forms of dispute resolution has grown significantly too. Mediation can be used successfully in a wide range of sports disputes, including an increasing number of commercial and financial ones. But its effectiveness depends on the willingness of the parties in dispute to compromise and reach creative and amicable solutions in their own interests and also those of sport. The growing importance of mediation in the sporting arena has been recognised and reflected by the introduction in 1999 of a Mediation Service by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.;The book adopts an essentially practical approach, but also provides an explanation of the theoretical background to the subject. The book also collects together a wide-ranging set of relevant and useful texts and documentation. Mediating Sports Disputes: National and International Perspectives is a useful tool for all those concerned with the effective and amicable resolution of sports disputes of whatever kind or nature, including sports governing bodies and administrators, marketeers, event managers, sponsors, merchandisers, hospitality providers, sports advertising agencies, broadcasters, and legal advisers.
