Additional Book Details

"Lifts the analysis out of the nuts and bolts of sports policy and into some really thought-provoking areas which will equip the policy maker for the challenges of the 21st century"

- Dominic Malcolm, Loughborough University



"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.
