               Looking Back, Thinking Ahead


           4th Annual Workshop, University of Stirling, Scotland

                        June 22nd and 23rd 2009



The organisers of the 2009 Workshop invite colleagues to submit papers
addressing the legal, management and policy issues that pertain to the
relationship between sports and the European Union. We welcome
theoretical and comparative perspectives and encourage contributions
that are wide-ranging and eclectic. Interdisciplinary contributions are
especially valued.

Contributions from academics, legal practitioners, coaches, sports
managers and anyone else with an interest in the field will all be equally
welcome. Early-career researchers and postgraduate students (who may
take advantage of the reduced-rate accommodation) are particularly
invited to attend. The aim of the workshop is simply to provide a
supportive, stimulating environment for considered discourse among
those interested in the EU’s relationship with sport.

We would encourage prospective participants to visit both the sport and
EU website (www.sportandeu.com) and that of Stirling Law School
(www.law.stir.ac.uk), if only to see the beautiful and historic Airthrey
Castle where the law school is now based and where the workshop will be
held. Thus enthused, prospective participants are invited to register by
completing and returning the form below. Those wishing to present a
paper should also submit an abstract of about 150 words (plus four or five
key words), and we would encourage everyone to do this.

The workshop is hosted and part-funded by the School of Law, University
of Stirling.

Forms and abstracts should be returned no later than Tuesday 31st March
2009 to Dr David McArdle, School of Law, Airthrey Castle, University of
Stirling, Scotland FK9 4LA (or email to d.a.mcardle@stir.ac.uk). Telephone
