Legal System, Regulatory Dynamics, and Governance in Sport

Manuscripts are currently being solicited for an upcoming special issue of the Journal of Global Sport Management dedicated to the “Legal System, Regulatory Dynamics and Governance in Sport.”


Legal environments, compliance rules/policies, and other regulatory dynamics are key determinants for governance in sport. Court decisions and new legislations establish external parameters within which sport organizations are operated. Compliance systems and internal policies are crucial controlling mechanisms designed to achieve strategic goals of sport organizations. Finally, formulating risk management strategies and contingency plans has become imperative and will have profound impacts on the future of the entire industry.

In accordance with the scope of the Journal of Global Sport Management, this special issue takes an interdisciplinary approach, and invite submissions from a variety of disciplines. Potential areas to be covered in the special issue may include (not limited to):

  • Legal issues in sport governance of private and public sport entities
  • Risk management analysis and contingency planning
  • Strategic management and alliance
  • Analysis of regulatory schemes in compliance
  • Legislative/policy proposal for institutional reform
  • Interleague and multinational coordination
  • Human rights issues in policy development and implementation

Encountering the unprecedented economic hardship caused by the recent pandemic, special consideration will be given to articles discussing the effects of the Covid-19 crisis on the above. There will be no preference between empirical vs. theoretical/conceptual or quantitative vs. qualitative studies, but each submitted manuscript must provide unique and significant contributions to the relevant body of literature.
