Managing abuse in both physical and virtual sporting spaces, and promoting integrity in sport to offer safe, fair and inclusive environments for all are crucial concerns in contemporary sports, physical activity, and health industries. The micro-interpersonal and macro-institutional contexts of abuse are broad and in many cases under-researched. To move this debate forward, we would like to draw your attention to a call for papers to contribute toward a special issue of Sport Management Review. The issue aims to promote thought, understanding, and action to enhance knowledge and practice on the management of abuse in sport.
We encourage submissions from scholars both inside and outside of the sport management domain (e.g., sociology, social psychology, coaching and pedagogy, psychology, sociocultural studies, criminology) to provoke a broad, interdisciplinary, and critical discussion about the management of abuse.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
Understanding identities, spaces, and places in relation to the management of abuse or non-accidental violence
Government and policy impacts for managing abuse
Implementation of legislation surrounding safeguarding, protection, and integrity
Case management and handling at both an interpersonal and/or organisational level
Whistleblowing and the reporting of abuse
Policing and regulating safe sporting spaces
Intervention and education of safeguarding and integrity in and through sport
Monitoring and evaluating safeguarding policy and praxis across contexts
Management roles and responsibilities in promoting integrity in sport
Facilitating programmes of empowerment
How abuse can have an impact upon participation
