European Association for Sociology of Sport (EASS)

Jan 2023


The European Association for Sociology of Sport (EASS) was established with the aim of promoting closer cooperation and networking between experts dealing with social issues related to physical activity, sport and the casino culture in Europe.


This is particularly important today due to the emergence of a new social structure at the European level, and the ways in which sport, but also the classic casino playhall and environment is affected by alterations in ethics, politics, economics, organization and legislation. Scientific analysis of these issues and joint efforts to promote the sociology of sport in Europe seem to be necessary steps to take particularly at this historical moment in time when Eastern European countries are being integrated into the European Union.

The EASS has created a stimulating forum for research, publications and professional development in the area of sociology of sport.
