The May issue of the ICSSPE Journal, Bulletin No 68, is online. Its special feature presents “Critical Pro-Activism and the "Brighton Effect" for Transforming Sport and Physical Education”, edited by John Nauright. It examines the "Brighton Effect" generated from this approach as outlined by Professor John Sugden in the ensuing paper.


This is followed by a series of papers by the University of Brighton linked scholars which explore how each of the authors operationalises critical engagement and activism for social transformation in and through sport.


The following chapters are part of the collection:

Beyond the Sport-Media-Tourism Complex: An Agenda for Transforming Sport, John Nauright;

Beyond Power Games: Critical Pro-Activism in Sport and Leisure Studies, The Brighton Approach, John Sugden;

Sport Management and the Clean Sport Agenda: Implications for Physical Education and Sport Policy Reform, Marc Keech;

The Personal and the Political in Teaching, Research and Activism, Megan Chawansky, Christopher R. Matthews and Nigel Jarvis;

Equity and Inclusion in Physical Education, Gary Stidder and Sid Hayes; and

Exploring the Social Benefit of Informal and Lifestyle Sports, Belinda Wheaton and Mark Doidge


In the Current Issues section two exciting articles of totally different contents are introduced. Richard Bailey writes about a topic of great current interest to many members - ‘What is the relationship between physical activity and educational success?’. In addition, a collaborative article from a group of researchers offers a critical perspective on the provision of Physical Education in English Primary Schools.
