Sport & Society promotes interdisciplinary research and education that studies the meaning of sport. We aim to contribute to a successful society by focusing on the impact of sport for public issues, such as public health and social resilience.

Sport is a rich context that can yield new insights about addressing social issues concerning health, inclusion and security.
