Now in a fully revised, expanded and updated second edition, Sport Policy and Development introduces the complex relationships between modern sport, policy, development and other aspects of wider society. It clearly explains the wider policy context that frames the governance and management of sport, and closely examines the two central components of sport development: development of sport (from grassroots to elite level) and development through sport (how sport is used at community level to achieve social objectives and to tackle social problems). This new edition includes five completely new chapters, covering key contemporary issues such as: Developing people, including volunteering, social capital and social responsibility The relationship between evidence, policy, politics and ideology Disability, health promotion and inclusion through sport Anti-doping policy and programmes in sport International sport-for-development and peace The book includes detailed case studies throughout, such as of London 2012 and Rio 2016, that demonstrate the ways in which the sport policy and development fields have changed, and are continually changing in response to the increasing political, social and cultural significance of sport. Accessible and engaging, this textbook is an invaluable introduction to sport policy and sport development for students, practitioners and policy-makers alike.
