About the course

This course is offered as part of a programme:

Sport Sciences: Sport in Society, Master's Programme (One-Year)

Course content

The course focuses on the governance, management and organisation of sport in a local, national and international context. The specific Scandinavian sport context is highlighted and problematised.

One central theme of the course regards ethical and democratic aspects of the management and organisation of sport. The discussion is built up around concepts like (good) governance, power and value systems.

During the course, national and international organisations and authorities managing sport issues (such as sport federations, community actors and the EU), and different regulatory documents are both analysed. Relations and connections between local, national and international levels are analysed from a comparative perspective.

The course addresses current sport ethical dilemmas, in relation to governance and regulation.
