    Disputas | Spillets gang! En institusjonell etnografisk undersøkelse om kjønn, makt og styring i idrettsorganisasjonen i Norge av Hanne Elisabeth Sogn, Norges idrettshøgskole, 2...

    Norsk idrett har i all hovedsak vært dominert, utviklet og ledet av menn fra og med Norges Idrettsforbund (NIF) ble stiftet i 1946. I den offentlige diskurs og i forskning om idrettsorganisasjonen beskrives norsk idrett ofte som en «mannsbastion», en organisasjon preget av en sementert mannskultur og manglende kjønnslikestilling. Formålet med Hanne Sogns prosjekt er å fremskaffe kunnskap om mulige årsaker til den vedvarende mannsdominans i toppledersjiktet i organisasjonen.
