Measuring the social impact of sport

50th Sport and Citizenship journal


This 50th issue is dedicated to the major challenge of social impact and its evaluation; in other words, how to help political decision-makers, partners and funders of sport to measure the way a major sporting event, a mass gathering, or a socio-educational action can shift sociological balance, which are often fragile, and thus contribute to strengthening social cohesion.
