Paul Dimeo

Senior Lecturer in Sport, University of Stirling

My main areas of research interest and expertise relate to drug use in sport and anti-doping policy.

I was a visiting Fulbright Commission Scholar at the University of Texas, Austin from September to December 2012, working on a project entitled: ‘The Doping of Elite Athletes in International Sport and the Politics of the Cold War, 1950-1990'.

I am the co-ordinator of SPS9SP Sports Policy. I also contribute to SPS9R7 Readings in Sports Studies, SPS9D8 Sports Dissertation and dissertation supervision.

My major research interest is doping in sport and the development of anti-doping policies. This has led to several publications including the prize-winning monograph A History of Drug Use in Sport, 1876-1976: Beyond Good and Evil (Routledge, 2007). I have recently completed three projects funded by the World Anti-Doping Agency. I have published on other policy issues including racism in sport, the migration of football players, tourism, and hosting major sports events.
