Abstract [en]

Because public policy advocacy involves participation in and impact on public policy process, it is often considered as inherently good not only for a society's democracy but also for the advocating organization. The purpose of this paper is to critically examine this supposition by analyzing how changes in volume and shape of advocacy conducted by voluntary sport organizations relate to broader issues of ‘modernization' of voluntary sport. The paper thus seeks to unveil how a seemingly positive development might have unintended and potentially adverse consequences for organizations that gain legitimacy from their standing as a voluntary, democratically governed organization. The paper builds theoretically on the concept of ‘institutionally legitimized roles' and empirically on 50 interviews with representatives of Swedish voluntary sport. This research seeks to determine which officials (e.g., paid or volunteer) adopt the role of ‘appropriate' representatives in advocacy endeavours, why and under what conditions. It also aims to investigate whether the strategic composition of the ‘advocacy team' is reflective (or a driver) of changes in institutionalized roles and the ‘modernization' of voluntary sport. The initial analysis shows the construction of four legitimate advocacy roles: Revolving door-, Elite-, Street-level-, and Proxy-advocates. There is moreover a clear emphasis on paid professionals and organization-external spokespersons – not elected officials – as legitimate representatives in advocacy. The internal ranking of advocacy roles in terms of their relative importance thus shows how changes in volume and form of advocacy interrelates with processes of ‘modernization'.
