Previous studies indicate that inter-sectoral networks and joint efforts can contribute to an increase in sport participation among these groups, but a systematic analysis of the structure, coordination and interactions in the networks is still missing. Insight into networks to promote sport for disadvantaged people may help...

A sample of 165 organizations from across all six continents rated 65 capacity-related elements. We employ a multilevel analysis to explain var...

SfD, as a less established development entity, has the potential to struggle for funding in an increasingly competitive development market. T...
