Show Summary Details


This chapter analyzes from a cross-cultural perspective some of the discursive practices of legal practitioners in the field of arbitration in sports. It focuses on some of the relevant rhetorical and textual features of the legal discourse exhibited by the International Code of Arbitration for Sport, issued by the International Council for Arbitration in Sport (ICAS), and the Code for Conciliation and Arbitration for Sport, issued by the Italian “Camera di Conciliazione e Arbitrato per lo Sport” established within the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI). The comparison between national and international regulations aims to identify the extent to which the country-specific socio-political and legal contexts may affect some aspects in of the practice of sports-related arbitration.

Keywords: international regulations; sports arbitration; ICAS; CONI; sports federations
