Sport for Development and Olympic Movement Stakeholders: A Social Network Analysis
The Institute for Sport Business are conducting a social network analysis (SNA) of funders, organisers and implementers in the Sport for Development (SfD) and Olympic Movement (OM) networks in Africa and Europe.
The goal of this research is to understand traditional and emerging networks in the global SfD landscape, produce valuable insights on productive collaboration and alliances and understand how funding, knowledge, social capital and leadership effectiveness flows through the SfD network. The research is funded by the IOC and contributes to the IOC’s pledge to support Sustainable Development Goals through sport by energising and enhancing global partnerships (IOC, 2017).
The research team aims to provide recommendations and strategies to the IOC on how to build stronger and more sustainable partnerships between OM stakeholders, UN Agencies, NGOs, Funders and Sponsors within the global network.
