SPRING – SPORT AND POLITICS RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL NETWORK GROUP

The Tokyo Olympics in July and August this year highlighted how sport and politics mix, with issues around issues such as race, gender and nationalism – and of course the controversy about the role of sport at a time of a huge public health crisis.  

SPRING, the Sport and Politics Research International Network Group, was officially founded on 22 October 2021 to analyse how sport interacts with issues of politics. Its founding symposium “Global Issues and Sport” paved the way for exporing the questions of climate change and greenwashing in sports, of sports and human rights, of sports and globalisation, and other topics.
