A research agenda for Olympic reform

WithRichard W. Pound

My assignment for this article is to pretend that I am the Director of the McGill Olympic

Studies Centre (which does not, alas, exist) and to provide a list of research topics which

I might assign to faculty and students. The topics are selected with particular (although not

exclusive) reference to the Reforms adopted by the International Olympic Committee

(IOC) in 1999, following the Salt Lake City bidding scandal in relation to the 2002

Olympic Winter Games.
