Special Issue of Sport History Review
 
“International Federations and National Governing Bodies: The Historical Development of Institutional Policies in Response to Challenging Issues in Sport."
 
We are pleased to announce this special issue of Sport history Review, which will identify and analyze key events and developments in the histories of international and national sport federations by highlighting their policies to combat major challenges in sport. International Sport Federations (IFs), National Sport Federations (NFs), and other nongovernmental bodies of sport are powerful stakeholders in the international sprot system. Because IFs and NFs administer sport on both the national and global levels, their policies have significant impacts. Yet, as important as these governing bodies are, they remain an under-researched area of sport history. IFs' and NFs' policies shaped sport at the local, national, and international level; therefore, the lack of information about their decisions is a significant research gap.
 
Deadline for Submissions: We invite the submission of abstracts (maximum 500 words), outlining the intended topic, to all Guest Editors by December 14, 2018. Notification of the acceptance of abstracts will be made by January 11, 2019. Full papers must then be submitted by May 31, 2019.
