Risk and sport : an analysis of sociological theories and research agendas.

Giulianotti, R. (2009) 'Risk and sport : an analysis of sociological theories and research agendas.', Sociology of sport journal., 26 (4). pp. 540-556.


Risk has been a prominent keyword in public and academic spheres since the early 1990s. Discourses of risk assessment and management now underpin a vast range of professional, social and political domains, from the planning of children’s leisure to global diplomacy on nuclear proliferation. Similar to “cultural” and “global” turns, we may speak of a “risk turn” that marks an epistemological and ontological step-change from the early 1990s onwards in social sciences.
