Sports Law in the European Union

Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this practical analysis of sports law in the European Union deals with the regulation of sports activity by both public authorities and private sports organizations. The growing internationalization of sports inevitably increases the weight of global regulation, yet each country maintains its own distinct regime of sports law and its own national and local sports organizations. Sports law at a national or organizational level thus gains a growing relevance in comparative law. The book describes and discusses both state-created rules and autonomous self-regulation regarding the variety of economic, social, commercial, cultural, and political aspects of sports activities. Self- regulation manifests itself in the form of by-laws, and encompasses organizational provisions, disciplinary rules, and rules of play. However, the trend towards more professionalism in sports and the growing economic, social and cultural relevance of sports have prompted an increasing reliance on legal rules adopted by public authorities. This form of regulation appears in a variety of legal areas, including criminal law, labour law, commercial law, tax law, competition law, and tort law, and may vary following a particular type or sector of sport. It is in this dual and overlapping context that such much-publicized aspects as doping, sponsoring and media, and responsibility for injuries are legally measured. This monograph fills a gap in the legal literature by giving academics, practitioners, sports organizations, and policy makers access to sports law at this specific level. Lawyers representing parties with interests in the European Union will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative sports law.

The Political Economy of Professional Sport

This timely book offers a critical interpretation of the traditional social and economic accounts of sport. It provides an incisive analysis of professional sport and defines alternative foundations to the present model. The authors demonstrate that professional sport is an extremely complex phenomenon encompassing many unique factors depending on its global reach, financing and organization. In particular they address three significant issues: • an analysis of the relationship between sport and economic development in order to explain the place of professional sport in modern societies • a study of the main difficulties facing the organization of professional sports in terms of financing, collective bargaining and the consequences of revenue sharing for competitive balance • an exploration of alternatives to current governance structures which would involve a return to professional ethics. This insightful and topical book is essential for academics and students of sport management, researchers of the economics of sport, managers of clubs and federations involved in professional sports, as well as civil servants and journalists.

New Employment Actors

This volume contains a selection of papers which go back to a conference on new employment actors, held at the University of Sydney in November 2006. The book contends that employment relations must be broadened to examine the new actors and processes and the role these play in the regulation and experience of work. It demonstrates this in the context of recent developments in Australia. In addition, the contributions evaluate the extent to which new employment actors either reinforce or replace the activities of the more established trade union, management, and state-based actors. It is argued that an inclusion of these new actors and processes is a more comprehensive way of understanding and explaining industrial society in the 21st century.

Power Play

Globalization  Sports Law and Labour Mobility

This book examines labour regulation and labour mobility in two professional baseball leagues: Major League Baseball in the United States and Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan. Through vivid comparative study, Matt Nichol explores how each league internally regulates labour mobility and how this internal regulation engages with external regulation from the legislature, statutory authorities and the courts. This comparison of two highly restrictive labour markets utilizes regulatory theory and labour regulation and suggests a framework for a global player transfer system in baseball.

Popular Cultures

"The author's style is breezy and likable, but many of his references to Australian music and sports concepts and studies will be unfamiliar to readers in the U.S. The latter fact may be a good reason for reading the book, as means of testing the generality of accepted thought about sport and music." --Choice "Relentlessly intelligent, at once critical and respectful of its subjects, and carefully documented, David Rowe's book is especially useful for working through the bipolar opposition between theories of power and theories of resistance, between large-scale political economic domination and localized oppositional readings. Forceful and pointed, yet accepting a degree of inconclusiveness, Rowe works through the complete range of relevant theoretical formulations and conflicting real-world forces. Rowe's theoretical sophistication is a godsend. He knows and enjoys the pleasures of his subjects but examines them with demanding originality. Never content with the easy or the obvious, this work marks a significant advance in cultural theory and application. Popular Cultures places David Rowe in the first-rank of cultural theorists." --Michael Real, Telecommunications and Film Department, San Diego State University Rock music and sport are the pulse of Popular Cultures, a fascinating examination of the interrelations between economics, ideology, and culture. This book gives the reader a unique insight into the dynamics of rock music and sport, discussing how they encompass the contradictory elements of popular culture. Using punk rock music as a case study, author David Rowe analyzes it in terms of production, practical consciousness, and symbolic expression--a blending of cultural studies and political economy. Using rock music and sport as case studies, the author effectively combines economics, culture, and popular forms of recreation. Thus, this book is essential reading for students and researchers in popular culture, cultural studies, leisure studies, sociology, communication, and related fields of study.

An Introduction to the Canadian Labour Market

This rivalry is evident in professional sports , where teams lure free - agent players away from the opposing teams . The desire to avoid paying economic rent has led , on occasion , to collusion among owners of sports franchises .

An Introduction to the Canadian Labour Market

An Introduction to the Canadian Labour Market is designed for prospective human resource professionals. The text avoids the highly sophisticated statistical techniques that have come to characterize the field over the last two decades. Concepts are presented in non-technical language without relying on mathematical equations. Four goals define the book’s practical approach: 1) to inform the reader about major trends and developments in the Canadian labour market; 2) provide explanation for these real-world developments and labour market outcomes; 3) show why economists sometimes disagree; and 4) teach the reader to apply labour market theory to analyses of current events and labour policy issues.

Women and the Canadian Labour Market

Women and the Canadian labour market is the second in a series of census monographs produced by Statistics Canada. The monographs provide substantive, in-depth analyses of selected themes and demonstrate the power and value of census data. Other topics in the series include population aging, income distribution, immigration, the family, education, the labour force, and Aboriginal peoples. The monographs are designed to be integrated into a variety of academic programs and to serve as background in the formulation and development of public policy. Over the past 25 years women have increased their participation in the labour market at a substancial rate. The question of their sucess in penetrating the labour market has been the focus of numerous studies and policy initiatives over this period. Women and the Canadian Labour Market presents a multifaceted analysis of women's participation in the labour market, the number of hours they devote to paid work, their earnings, where they work and their occupations. It also analyses the impact of policy initiatives as they pertain to women's participation in the labour market.
