Abstract

This policy brief aims at taking stock of the Russian state doping scandal and at proposing a way forward for a reform of the World Anti-Doping System. It points out the dramatic shortcoming of the World Anti-Doping Agency with regard to the compliance of signatories with the World Anti-Doping Code and its urgent need for an institutional overhaul. To address this compliance lapse, the policy brief advances five key general directions and a number of concrete reform proposals.
