Abstract

In this chapter we assert the need for a transformative approach to conducting research on sport. The transformative approach, which we call Critical Proactivism, insists upon the scholar taking an active political stance in conducting research with an explicit purpose for attempting to transform sport and the ways knowledge is produced about sport. We argue in this chapter, and introduce the various ways the contributors to this volume demonstrate, that it is not enough to call for change within sport, but efforts to transform the very power relations and institutional structures of sport.
