Doping: Science, ethics and law
Til møtet kommer blant annet den profilerte forskeren Roger Pielke, jr., som er professor ved University of Colorado, U.S.A. Han har i flere år hatt en høy og tydelig røst om ærlighet og redelighet, både innen idretten og innen forskning. Han har skrevet en rekke artikler og bøker om temaene og brukes som ekspertvitne i Senatet i U.S.A.
Idretten har stor samfunnsmessig betydning og popularitet, krever store ressurser og tar mye plass i det offentlige rom. Men idrettens verdier blir kraftig utfordret av doping. Prosessene mot Martin Jonsrud Sundby og Therese Johaug har utløst harde debatter og mange uttrykker tydelige meninger om de aktuelle problemstillingene. Hvorfor engasjerer disse sakene oss så sterkt? Er det godt samsvar mellom folks rettsoppfatning og hva som skjer i antidoping-saker? Hvilke regler er det som gjelder? Hvordan bør antidopingarbeidet reguleres? Gode svar krever informert debatt basert på etisk, naturvitenskapelig og juridisk kompetanse.
