Gender equality is one of the founding democratic principles of the EU. However, recent studies of the Federation of Olympic Sports in Europe have shown that women occupy only fourteen percent of decision-making positions in sport organizations. This book presents a comprehensive and comparative study of how various regions and countries of Europe have addressed this lack of gender diversity, discussing which strategies have brought about change and to what extent these changes have been successful. With contributions from leading sport sociologists, covering countries such as Germany, Hungary, Norway, Poland, Spain, Turkey and the UK, it provides a foundation for future policymaking, methodological analyses and theoretical developments that can result in sustainable gender equality in European sport governance. Gender Diversity in European Sport Governance is important reading for scholars and students in the fields of sociology of sport, sport management, sociology, gender studies and studies of organization, management and leadership. It is also a valuable resource for policy makers in the EU, as well as national sport organizations and activists.

Diversity equity and inclusion in sport and leisure

Despite the mythology of sport bringing people together and encouraging everyone to work collectively to success, modern sport remains a site of exclusionary practices that operate on a number of levels. Although sports participation is, in some cases at least, becoming more open and meritocratic, at the management level it remains very homogenous; dominated by western, white, middle-aged, able-bodied men. This has implications both for how sport develops and how it is experienced by different participant groups, across all levels. Critical studies of sport have revealed that, rather than being a passive mechanism and merely reflecting inequality, sport, via social agents’ interactions with sporting spaces, is actively involved in producing, reproducing, sustaining and indeed, resisting, various manifestations of inequality. The experiences of marginalised groups can act as a resource for explaining contemporary political struggles over what sport means, how it should be played (and by whom), and its place within wider society. Central to this collection is the argument that the dynamics of cultural identities are contextually contingent; influenced heavily by time and place and the extent to which they are embedded in the culture of their geographic location. They also come to function differently within certain sites and institutions; be it in one’s everyday routine or leisure pursuits, such as sport. Among the themes and issues explored by the contributors to this volume are: social inclusion and exclusion in relation to class, ‘race’ and ethnicity, gender and sexuality; social identities and authenticity; social policy, deviance and fandom. This book was published as a special issue of Sport in Society.

Human Resource Management in Olympic Sport Organisationsprovides a thorough explanation of human resource issues that Olympic sport organizations (OSOs) face, and it offers guidelines for resolving those issues. It also gives sport managers tools for analyzing how to maintain and improve their organizational structures. The book is the third volume in the Executive Masters in Sports Organisation Management (MEMOS) program, which aims to improve management of sport organizations and provide a higher level of training for sport managers. The text presents a complete set of management issues in the Olympic movement that will help readers better understand the ambitious goals of this dynamic global entity. All topics are presented within the context of the Olympic organizational structure and include organizational justice, staffing, leadership, performance appraisal, reward systems, empowerment of workers, management of diversity, and handling of conflict. The text introduces and discusses cases to create awareness of the topics and to help identify possible solutions. The authors do not present a "global template" approach with solutions ready to be applied by all OSOs; rather, they provide flexible guidelines that lead to the appropriate practical action within each OSO. Because human resources are such a vital aspect of managing organizations, the text thoroughly explains how all of the traditional aspects of human resource management may be directly applied to Olympic sport organizations. The chapters progress as follows: -Chapter 1 discusses some of the distinctive features of OSOs from a perspective of human resource management. -Chapter 2 delves into human resource practices, with particular attention paid to the specific problems and challenges that OSOs face. -Chapter 3 presents issues in organizational design, including the role and composition of the executive board and how to form a powerful board. -Chapter 4 explores diversity in the workplace, including valuing diversity and strategies for managing a diverse workforce. -Chapter 5 features coauthor Packianathan Chelladurai's renowned multidimensional model of leadership as applied to OSOs. -Chapter 6 concludes with a focus on managing organizational change and knowledge. Human Resource Management in Olympic Sport Organisationsprovides Olympic sport managers with the information they need to understand the unique human resource considerations of OSOs, where a variety of constituents, including organizers, athletes, volunteers, and professional workers, play vital roles. After reading this book, managers will feel comfortable with inevitable change and diversity within organizations and be better prepared to make strategic decisions that benefit their Olympic sport organizations.

This book provides students and scholars with a selection of the state-of-the-art research and new conceptual thinking in the field of sport management by a diverse and prominent group of researchers. It is the first anthology to situate sport management within the broader frameworks of sport sociology and cultural studies, a process already begun in general business studies. The chapters that comprise this collection are divided into three sections: Part I challenges sport management students and scholars to engage with epistemologies and methodologies associated with critical theory to better contextualise their thinking and research. Part II features critically informed research focused within three key topical areas of sport management: marketing and sponsorship, consumption, and governance and policy development. Thirteen case studies provide wide-ranging examples of research on the global sports industry through which students, professors, and professionals alike can form cross-cultural analyses. Part III presents work on emerging themes such as economic development, human rights, media culture, and sports tourism. Conceived and developed as a clarion call for a more critical, reflexive approach to sport management education and practice, this book is designed to spark debate, discussion, and reflection and to better inform research questions and professional practice in the future. The book is essential reading for all students, scholars, and professionals interested in achieving a better understanding of the globalised nature of the sports industry and to improving future practice and research.
