About me

My name is Verity and I am a researcher contributing to debate about the relations between sport and society in national and international contexts.

My previous research projects link to the interdisciplinary areas of sport policy, sport diplomacy, and sport mega-events.

In other words, I like anything to do with sport and society!

I have a BA in Politics, an MA in International Law, Ethics and Politics, and completed my PhD in Spring 2020.

PhD thesis title: Interconnecting discourses between governing actors, policy, and legacy around London 2012

I am currently working on short term research and teaching contracts, whilst writing up applications and research publications. Projects include work with Counsel Ltd., De Montfort University and the International Centre for Sports History and Culture, and SOAS University of London Japan Research Centre.

My latest academic article: Inspiring a generation: an examination of stakeholder relations in the context of London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics educational programmes
