Sports & politics

There are numerous cases in which politics have played a positive part in the history of sports. Like the famous example of the sporting boycott of South Africa during apartheid. But in many more cases politics are misused to force biased disputes between countries. There is a thin line between what’s lawful and what’s simply wrong. FERW aims to spot and prevent the abuse of power in the industry of sports.
