Description

The governance of international sport is dominated by the SINGOs (sporting international non-governmental organisations).

The IOC, FIFA, IAAF and the FIA wield global influence, but how exactly do such complex organisations operate?

This important book examines the rise of the SINGOs, their structures, organisational behaviour and their power in the context of modern sport and international politics.

Written by two world-leading experts, the book sheds new light on the relationship between these SINGOs and the sports which they govern.

It provides a close critical analysis of the policies and practices of the most important international sport organisations, from their historical origins to the present day.

Using case studies of key events such as the Olympics and the recent FIFA scandals, it examines the central question of how best to understand the significance of these organisations today. Combining historical insight with original research, Understanding International Sport Organisations: Principles, Power and Possibilities is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the politics of sport, the sociology of sport, sport administration, sport business or sport management.
