Declan is a journalist, academic and consultant. He is one of the world’s foremost experts on match-fixing and corruption in international sports. In 2008, Declan, as a Chevening Scholar, obtained his doctorate in Sociology at the University of Oxford.

His book ‘The Fix: Soccer and Organized Crime’ has appeared in twenty-one languages. Declan was the first person to show the new danger to international sport posed by the globalization of the gambling market and match-fixing at the highest levels of professional football including the Champions League and FIFA World Cup tournaments.

In 2011, he pioneered the first on-line anti-match-fixing education course for Sport Accord that was eventually used by Interpol. In 2013, his second book ‘The Insider’s Guide to Match-Fixing’ was published and immediately translated to Japanese. It is a popular version of his doctoral thesis and was dubbed by its English-language publisher as ‘Freakonomics meets Sports Corruption’.

“Excellent book! Top research, clean prose, beautifully paced.” –  Simon Kuper Financial Times
