Sport & Society

Sport & Society (SASO) aims to understand the personal and societal impact of sport by studying sport (practices) at the individual and organisational level. By building upon its past and current research, SASO continues to grow to become a leading international centre of knowledge regarding the impact of sport on individuals and on society, recognized by key stakeholders and international organizations inside and outside the sport sector. Over the years, the focus has largely been at the micro level on describing and identifying core components of sports-based developmental practices and analyzing youth’s experiences. We have now begun to look for more in-depth understanding on processes expected to lead to actual social impact.
