Book Description ALPHA, 2008. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws,this practical analysis of sports law in Turkey / the context of[organization etc.]> deals with the regulation of sports activity by bothpublic authorities and private sports organizations. The growinginternationalization of sports inevitably increases the weight of globalregulation, yet each country maintains its own distinct regime of sports lawand its own national and local sports organizations. Sports law at a nationalor organizational level thus gains a growing relevance in comparative law.The book describes and discusses both state-created rules and autonomousself-regulation regarding the variety of economic, social, commercial,cultural, and political aspects of sports activities. Self- regulationmanifests itself in the form of by-laws, and encompasses organizationalprovisions, disciplinary rules, and rules of play. However, the trend towardsmore professionalism in sports and the growing economic, social and culturalrelevance of sports have prompted an increasing reliance on legal rulesadopted by public authorities. This form of regulation appears in a variety oflegal areas, including criminal law, labour law, commercial law, tax law,competition law, and tort law, and may vary following a particular type orsector of sport. It is in this dual and overlapping context that suchmuch-publicized aspects as doping, sponsoring and media, and responsibilityfor injuries are legally measured.This monograph fills a gap in the legal literature by giving academics,practitioners, sports organizations, and policymakers access to sports law atthis specific level. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Turkey/ applying the rules of [organization etc.] will welcome this very usefulguide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study ofcomparative sports law.
