Sport and the European Union: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org).
