Global Sports Policy

"This is an excellent analysis of the significance of globalisation for national sport policy and especially of the impact of global processes at the local socio-cultural level"
- Barrie Houlihan, Loughborough University
Drawing upon a range of empirical case studies, Catherine Palmer situates sports policy within a broader consideration of global processes, practices and consequences, exploring the relationship between:
- the local and the global
- globalization and governance
- new technologies
- human rights
- the environment
- corporate responsibility.
In doing so she sets out the ground for an understanding of policy making in sport and how this affects society.
Covering both theory and practice, it is a detailed and thought provoking resource for students of sports policy, sports development, sports management and sports studies.
