The Swedish Sports Confederation, RF, defines itself as a ‘popular movement’. This notion has been one of the most fundamental elements of the sports movement’s self-image, and it has also been used as a way for the movement to legitimize itself – considering it is financially supported by the Swedish state. This sport organizational identity also denotes that RF is governed democratically. Both the social movement identity and the notion of democratic comportment have been fundamental to the sports movement’s self-understanding. The governing of Swedish sport has so far been scrutinized mostly on a general level concerning the relationship between public authorities and RF. The association level has not been considered to the same extent in previous research. Nor has the issue of sport democracy been particularly highlighted as a research topic in its own right. However, in order to understand the governing of as well as the social and cultural impact of Swedish sport, we must understand how those institutions in authority have been managed and regulated. Based on both innovative theoretical models and empirical in depth analysis, the articles in this special issue find new ways to explain and understand how Swedish sport has been governed and controlled.
