Abstract

This chapter examines policy as it relates to sport development (SD) and sport for development (SFD). In particular, considering what policy is and how it influences SD. Key policy actors, including organisations and institutions at international, national, and local levels, are considered and discussed in relation to the ways in which they may influence the formation and implementation of policy. The policy process is explored in-depth through two case studies. The first charts the development of SFD policy drawing on a global analysis. The second case study provides a country-specific examination of SD and SFD policy using Australia as the context. Collectively, these case examples and the introductory content provide insight into the application of policy in SD and SFD contexts.
