Research & Scholarship

Research and scholarship form a central component of the AWF and of the University. Research on women and sport raises awareness of key issues and challenges assumptions and beliefs. The impact of such research, when combined with practice, can be a very powerful and inspirational catalyst for change.

Between 2012-2014, the AWF was part of an international research team which produced the 2014 International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) Progress Report. In 2016, the team were recommissioned to produce the 2018 IWG Progress Report.

The AWF has been central to the work of three doctoral studentships at the University of Chichester. The outputs from these studies, and broader AWF work, can be found on our Outputs page.
