Sport and Employment in Europe

Journal n°18, by the Think tank Sport and Citizenship

 Our daily news relentlessly reminds us that this is a major topic of concern- especially during an economic crisis period. In this context what is the position of the sport sector? What economic weight does it represent on the EU level? The numerous studies carried out on this subject highlight the main market trends: a young, heterogeneous and dynamic professional sector under constant evolution, and granted with highly mobile workers. The European union wants to base its sports policy on reliable, comparable data, however the only information they have on employment is 8 years old (Vocasport Study). An update is long due!
