  • Strategies and policies: Anti-doping policies – research in children and youth, links to European activities. Partnership of public/municipal and third sectors sport organizations in the area of sport promotion, sport for all (i.e. focus on health and lifelong interest in sports).

  • Philosophical and social issues: the theme of embodiment within sport and relevant areas.
