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 question: how do sporting events influence relations between state and non-state actors?

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

I have a BA in Politics and an MA in International Law, Ethics and Politics. I 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.

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