Chapter 26: Terrorism and sport
Restricted access

This chapter examines how, influenced by wider political and public concern about the risk posed by politically motivated violence, terrorism and the prevention of violent extremism have been taken up in sports research, policy and practice. The author discusses the current state of knowledge and directions for future research through the lens of his own research journey. Tracing the evolution of his past and current research on terrorism and on sport, and the confluence of the two strands of research, the author outlines the theoretical and methodological approaches that have underpinned this work. The chapter concludes by charting the knowledge translation practices and approach to impact that have characterised this research journey, with the aim to raise awareness among scholars about how their research can have impact beyond academia.
