In this Breakfast Briefing, Professor Laura McAllister will reflect on the governance of sport in Wales and beyond. Wales has its own sport governance framework, co-developed by organisations and individuals within the sector. As in many other spheres of life in the UK, key governance themes of accountability, transparency, trust and diversity all feature. They sit alongside the importance of good leadership, and are supported by principles, values and practices which have broad relevance throughout UK society and business. Professor McAllister’s reflections from her practitioner experience of working in Welsh, UK and European sports governance will take in this wider canvas, and connect also to her insights into the importance of sport as Wales’ ‘soft power’.
