By establishing de facto precedents, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) exercises considerable influence of over the regulatory framework governing sports, and therefore sports itself, on a global scale. CAS is however not a traditional, policy-based regulatory body and the normative changes it brings about is a function of the cases and arguments put before it and the men and women acting as arbitrators. This article explores whether, to what extent, and in what way the Nordics influence CAS.
