[Extract] Literature review: Until very recently, research on doping in sport was confined to biological studies aimed at detecting drug use. The potential role of research into the attitudes of potential users was largely ignored (World Anti-Doping Agency, 2003) and has only recently begun to be explored. The noted lack of athlete participation in international antidoping policy development is not unusual. Some would suggest it reflects a lack of athlete participation in decisionmaking processes affecting their lives more generally. Antidoping policy researcher Barrie Houlihan (2004) summarizes the literature on international world-class antidoping policy when he writes that "anti-doping policy is generally made for, or on behalf of, athletes, rarely in consultation with athletes, and almost never in partnership with athletes" (pp. 421-422).
