Abstract [en]

The focus of this study is what arguably has been, and continues to be, one of the biggest challenges of member-based federated sport systems: members’ (un)equal access to the decision making bodies that govern their sport participation. For example, in Sweden, a country often held forward as an exemplar of equality and diversity (World Economic Forum, 2016), 11 out of 71 NSO boards have zero or one female member on their board (Swedish Research Council for Sport Science, 2016a) and at sport club level, 75% of clubs lack board members under the age of 25 (Swedish Research Council for Sport Science, 2016b). The problem of skewed representation is especially troubling in systems built on the principles of democracy because it undermines the legitimacy of the governance system as such. The current situation thus calls for knowledge on how representation is constructed (e.g., Burton, 2015; Elling, Hovden, & Knoppers, 2016; Hoye & Cuskelly, 2007; King, 2016). This study addresses this need by creating knowledge on NSO board nomination processes and the manner in which they (re)shape NSO board composition. While most previous studies on sport board composition (e.g., Adriaanse Schofield, 2014; Claringbould & Knoppers, 2007; Fundberg, 2009; Hovden, 2000; Ottesten, Skirstad, Pfister, Habermann, 2010) have paid special attention to the over- or underrepresentation of particular social (or other) categories (e.g., gender), we aim to inductively capture the variety of meanings concerning the ideal board member that are mobilized during board nomination processes. Theoretically informed by cultural sociology and the concept of repertoires of meaning, drawn from Swidler’s (1986, 2003) “repertoire theory,” we investigate election committees’ use of certain explanations as they perform their task of nominating individuals for election. In doing so, we address the following research questions. First, what repertories of meaning are mobilized in board nomination processes? Second, how are the criteria that are immanent in these repertoires of meaning weighed against each other, and how does this process work as inclusionary or exclusionary? We recognize the need for both fine-grained data, qualitative data, and many data points that allow for comparisons and ultimately construction of patterns. To satisfy all these criteria, we conduct telephone interviews aided by an interview guide with a limited, very carefully selected, number of interview questions. Our aim is to conduct interviews with the chairperson of the election committee of each of the 71 Swedish NSOs. Data collection is halfway through and will be finalized in the coming months. Data analysis, which will be conducted in the months leading up to the SMAANZ conference, will be conducted using Miles and Huberman’s (1994, p. 61) “accounting-scheme guided approach”, employing a mixture of predetermined and emergent codes.
