Jayne Caudwell & Darragh McGee’s edited volume Human Rights and Events, Leisure and Sport (Routledge) originated as a special issue of the Leisure Studies journal. In ten chapters, various mega events and other social phenomena are studied from the point of view of human rights. In his review, Lasse Frandsen takes a closer look at two instances, the Calais Jungle refugee camp and the São Paulo Pride 2017.
A 2018 issue of Sport in Society ending up as a 2019 anthology from Routledge is not exactly startling, and in this case, as in many others, it seems like a good way to keep Important issues alive in the academic debate. Ethical Concerns in Sport Governance, edited by Souvik Naha & David Hassan gets a rather favorable review from Pam Sailors, who, nonetheless, is quite pessimistic regarding the potential for improvement.
The considerable growth of interest in commerce, media and politics and their relationship to sport in international academia has resulted in academics in various disciplines writing about sport. Sport in Society is a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary forum for academics to discuss the growing relationship of sport to significant areas of modern life.
Leisure Studies is the journal of the Leisure Studies Association. The emphasis of the journal is on theoretically informed critical analyses within the social sciences and humanities of the wide range of topics that constitute leisure as a subject field – including the arts, tourism, cultural, informal and virtual activities, urban and rural recreation, sport, media and physical activities.
