For the first time ever, the Association for the Study of Sport and the European Union (Sport&EU) moves to Scandinavia for its 12th Annual Conference, which will be hosted on 29 and 30 June 2017 by the Faculty of Business Administration and Social Sciences in Molde University College, Norway.

The association would like to seize the occasion of this annual conference to look forward to the most pressing challenges for the study of sport in the European continent as a whole. Given the recent socio-economic-political instabilities in different parts of Europe, the ultimate aim of this conference is to discuss the challenges ahead for European sport, its role within the European integration process, and the prospects of academic research on these two subjects.

Against this backdrop, Sport&EU invites the submission of paper, poster and panel proposals that address one or more of the main thematic topics identified for the conference:

  • Sport and EU post-Brexit referendum: What will the implications be?
  • Migration crisis: Does sport have a role to play?
  • EU funding programs for research in sport: What’s the score?
  • Governance in European sport: Democracy, transparency, accountability and inclusivity in the representation of interested parties.
  • Corporate social responsibility in professional sports across Europe: What the best practices are? Is there any?
  • Sport (for) development: What’s more/different needed?
  • Social media platforms: is this the ‘new best player’ of the commercialised sport landscape?
  • Homophobia issues in European sport.
  • Minorities and sport in Europe.

Following one of Sport&EU’s established traditions, we strongly encourage proposals with original interdisciplinary approaches including works in the fields of law, economics, business, history and social sciences. As always we are also very interested to see work in progress by PhD candidates or graduate students. In line with Sport&EU’s traditional policy of promoting gender equality, female academics and/or practitioners are particularly encouraged to send their proposals.

Also, building on our commitment to link academics and practitioners, we would welcome proposals from practitioners in the area, or joint proposals that bring both sides together to enrich the debate. This refers to both the authors and/or the content of the poster, paper or panel.

For single paper or poster proposals, please send a 250-word abstract, together with a short biography and your contact details.

For panel proposals (maximum of 3 papers per panel) please send in a single document a 250-word panel abstract, together with a 250-word abstract for each paper and a short biographic note for each presenter. Please also indicate whether you have identified a chair for the panel or whether you would request the organisers to allocate one. All paper/poster and panel proposals should clearly indicate which one of the thematic topics they address.

Proposals should be sent by email to the organisers at the following address: conference@sportandeu.com

Please note the submission deadline: 13 February 2017.

All paper/poster or panel proposals will receive a reply by 28 February 2017.
