Sport&EU Conference 2014

Sport Systems and Sport Governance in Europe: Changes, Challenges and the Multi-Level Perspective 

The 9th annual conference of Sport&EU will be hosted by the German Sport University Cologne from 26th to 27th of June 2014. It is jointly organized by the Department of Political Science of the University of Mainz and by the German Sports University’s Institute for European Sport Development and Leisure Studies. The hosts are Prof. Dr. Jürgen Mittag (Cologne), Prof. Dr. Arne Niemann and Dr. Alexander Brand (Mainz).

The unflagging convergence between sport and other social areas as well as the increasing interference of governmental and non-governmental players on the organisation of sport indicate the growing importance of the relationship between policy-making and sport. The triggered substantial changes within the European sport system in particular and sport governance in general still lack systematic research. Against this backdrop, the conference aims to enhance research on European sport systems in view of either the national and the European level – and its linkages.
