dc.description.abstractLike other international federations after the Second World War, the International Ski Federation (FIS) received an application from the Soviet Union and both German states for recognition. As one of the earliest international federations to recognise East Germany separately – and as a full member – alongside West Germany, FIS was then forced to confront the Cold War numerous times over the next two decades. Actions taken by FIS as Cold War lines hardened brought politics into the federation’s business, and the federation faced multiple challenges as it attempted to negotiate the Cold War following the recognition of these states.en
