Research

My main body of research is on the construction, communication and dissemination of management ideas and organisational change as well as the management and impact of corporate/social responsibility (e.g. in and through sport). Generally, my approach is from an international and intercultural viewpoint and in collaboration with colleagues from Europe, North America and New Zealand mainly.

Currently, I am working on a study focusing on CSR-related conversations on social media in Europe (funded by the UEFA Research Grant Programme), for example.

Recently, I was the lead guest editor of the Special Issue “Governance and CSR management in sport” in Corporate Governance – The International Journal of Business in Society (2015, Vol 15 Iss 2; see http://www.emeraldinsight.com/toc/cg/15/2).

I am the lead guest editor of the special issue "The marketing and public affairs of sustainability" in Journal of Public Affairs (publication 2018) and the European Sport Management Quarterly special issue "Social responsibility and the European sport context" (publication 2019).

Also, I am the editor of the volume "Golf business and management:

a global introduction", endorsed by The R&A and IMG (Routledge, 2018, https://www.routledge.com/Golf-Business-and-Management-A-Global-Introduction/Breitbarth-Kaiser-Jovy-Dickson/p/book/9781138957176)

I a board member of the European Association for Sport Management and its scientific committee chair - as well as the scientific chair of the 25th EASM Conference in Bern 2017 (www.easm2017.com)...
