Sport and employment

Journal 45 from Sport and Citizenship Think tank

This new organisation for sport in France must enable its stakeholders to meet the ambitious objectives set by the public authorities in terms of top level sport and developing participation. One of the levers to be activated is obviously the development of employment. Whether it is in terms of overseeing sport practice or at the more strategic level of development, the sector is rapidly becoming more professional, and forecasts are promising for the next few years. Employment in sport remains fragile, however, for reasons from within and outside the sector.

Understanding the specific characteristics of jobs in sport and forward planning for change are therefore vital for moving into the future. That was the focus of the conference organised by our Think Tank, the Social Council of the Sport Movement (CoSMoS) and the National Sport and Leisure Profession Federation on 16 January at the National Assembly. In this revue we are following up these lines of reflection, with different points of view, including an interview with the French Sport Minister, Roxana Maracineanu.

 

Gender and Sport

Journal 46 from Sport and Citizenship Think Tank

 

The Women’s Football World Cup shining the spotlight on the issues and development potential in this discipline. FIFA has adopted its global Women’s Football Strategy and UEFA has adopted a five-year plan aimed at doubling the number of women players in Europe by 2024.

These initiatives should not be limited to football alone and must not be allowed to fade out after the closing ceremony. We need to make the most of this enthusiasm by adopting general measures to encourage everyone to do some kind of sport or physical activity, everywhere. Although the gap in sport participation is narrowing, there is still a lot of inequality between men and women, which is more or less marked depending on age and geographical location.

Of course, sport cannot do everything, but it should contribute to social progress.

In this review we are following up these lines of reflection, with different points of view.

 

Inclusion Through Sport

Journal 47 from Sport and Citizenship Think tank

 

In our societies, sport can no longer be seen just as competition. It can no longer be seen just as competition. It can no longer be ignored as a lever in cross-cutting public policies and social innovations. Among the many virtues attributed to sport, inclusion is one of the main ones.

In France, the last few decades have seen various policies aimed at integrating sections of the population alienated from sport or seen as vulnerable. the aims pursued are multiple, from easier access to traditional sports structures to help getting a job, not forgetting strengthening social capital and self-esteem.

That is the context for this issue of our review. We hope it will useful insights into the issues relating to social inclusion through sport by showing concrete examples from France and the rest of Europe.

In this review we are following up these lines of reflection, with different points of view.
