An academic paper by Marcus F. Mazzucco examines first whether the international sport system may be accurately described as a transnational autonomous legal order. Second, it examines whether the rules of this legal order, that is, the rules of international sport bodies, operates with relative immunity from national legal systems. Third, it addresses the inadequacies of relying upon state-based initiatives to regulate international sport by suggesting alternative regulatory mechanisms for ensuring that global sports law conforms to the universal legal principles of fairness and equity.
