This work addresses governance structures of sport organizations as well as policy issues pertaining to those organizations. Leading scholars have written chapters addressing characteristics associated with the governance of sport, sport ethics, collegiate governance, competitive balance, the Olympic Movement, disability sport issues, commercialization of sport, and gender equity, globalization, nationalism, and human rights in sport. These discussions lead to addressing a wide assortment of policy considerations and analyses of problematic areas that arise in sport. The identification and further analysis of sport policy initiatives allow readers to look inside the interworking of sport organizations while gaining an appreciation for the intricacies of those organizations.
