Sport on trial

Playing the field

As London gets ready for the Olympics, Index on Censorship visits the ethical pit stops, asks whether sporting events can be good for democracy and considers the appeal of championships to sports-mad politicians -- from Vladimir Putin to Alexsander Lukashenko.

Includes articles by: Corinna Ferguson on new threats to the right to protest in the UK; Stephen Escritt and Martin Polley on brand control; Arnold van Bruggen and Rob Hornstra on Russia's winter challenge; Leah Borromeo on what the Olympics means for locals.
