Law, war, and sports: Sanctions between accountability and effectiveness
Hamburg Forum on Sports Law
- Date: Jun 27, 2022
- Time: 05:00 PM (Local Time Germany)
- Location: Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law
The Russian war of aggression against Ukraine has ushered in a new era, not only in international relations. The great majority of states that adhere to international law have reacted to the war in ways that raise all kinds of legal questions, not least about sports law. The exclusion of Russian athletes, teams, and federations from competition is debatable. And let it not be overlooked that the sanctions against Russian individuals not only affect bilateral relationships between states, they also have far-reaching consequences for private legal arrangements. This year’s symposium for international sports law will address how the Russian aggression against Ukraine is reverberating through international sports.
More information can be found on our German webpage.
The symposium will be held in person at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law. Photographs will be taken and video recordings will be made during the event. The event is open to the public.
