TAGS Erasmus+ Project

Developed in response to an EU motion

Between October 2017 and January 2020, Sport Resolutions participated in the Teaching Awareness of Ethical Governance in Sport (TAGS) Project which was supported by the Erasmus+ programme.

The TAGS Project was developed in response to an EU motion (2016/2143 (INI)) on an integrated approach to Sport Police: good governance, accessibility, and integrity. 

The purpose of the Project was to develop a high quality and innovative teaching and learning resource for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).  

Sport Resolutions was one of five partners involved in the Project. The other partners were: University of Gloucestershire (UK), University of Thessaly (Greece), Palacký University Olomouc (Czech Republic), and Universitatea Transilvania din Brașov (Romania).

The Aims of the Project were:

  • To liaise with key stakeholders to identify a competency framework for ethical governance within the sports sector;​
  • To identify, thematically order and annotate key cases from disputes in sports governance;​
  • To develop a high quality teaching resource that focuses on developing awareness of ethical governance in sport;​
  • To engage in dissemination and exploitation activities that promote the practical utility of the teaching resource

To develop the following intellectual outputs: 

  • Needs Analysis Report
  • Case Study Compendium
  • Teaching Materials
  • Evaluation Report
  • Sport Resolutions drew on its experience as a world leading sport dispute resolution service to produce the content of the Case Study Compendium which is comprised of real cases collated from Sport Resolutions archives. The topics identified in the Needs Analysis Report informed the selection of cases which are intended to complement the Teaching Materials. The case studies provide a unique resource for HEI’s delivering programmes that focus on ethical issues arising is sports governance.
