The 2015 INHDR conference: Evaluating the unintended effects of anti-doping


On the 27th and 28th of August 2015 members of the International Network of Humanistic Doping Research assembled in Aarhus, Denmark for the 6th International INHDR conference. Under the conference theme “Evaluating the unintended effects of anti-doping”, seven keynote speakers were invited to present their research, views, and experiences. Also, the 2015 conference had a record number of abstract submissions, of which most were of very high quality, proving how vibrant a scholarly environment doping research is 15 years after the formation of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The conference report below is open access.
