The development of the agenda to guide social science research into drugs in sport was driven by two workshops. The first workshop examined basic drugs in sport issues, and attempted to put a common lexicon or discourse to frame and explore different ways of thinking about the issues. Development of this framework saw a first principles approach built from the purpose of social science towards the questions that proved starting points to understanding the issues at hand. The second workshop challenged the academic approach to drugs in sport with a hypothetical scenario discussed by people involved in the sports industry, including athletes, policy makers and parents of athletes. The results of these workshops form an insight into one attempt of a multi-disciplinary group to come to grips with how social science can contribute to relevant social issues such as understanding the role of drugs in sport.
