Sport Policy and Development in Challenging Times: Opportunities, Challenges, Possibilites

The Department of Sport and Physical Activity at Edge Hill University is proud to be hosting the 2013 European Sports Development Network (ESDN) Conference. This year’s two-day event will examine the various opportunities, challenges and possibilities facing policy-makers and practitioners working in sport and related domains in Europe and beyond. Bringing together academics, policy-makers and practitioners working in local, national and international contexts, the conference will take stock of the current policy landscape and consider the ways in which practitioners endeavour to achieve their objectives in increasingly challenging and highly politicized policy contexts to enhance comparative policy learning. Thinking and acting differently within this climate, together with the benefits of learning from other policy sectors, will ensure the conference offers a cutting-edge insight into the possible futures of sport policy and development practice in the UK and beyond.
