English abstract
It has long been argued that that there is a common Scandinavian way of organising sport, which is closely related to the development of the Scandinavian social democratic welfare model and civic sector. In time of reorganisation or reduction of the welfare state and growing doubt about sport‘s inherent capacity to deliver towards the public social policy agenda – solving social integration and public health problems, such as growing problems with obesity related illnesses – the topic of social responsibility has become increasingly important to sport (Persson, 2008, 2011a). While introducing the reader to Scandinavian sport governance and the central issues facing sport governance in Scandinavia, football governance in the three countries will be used to discuss the development of good governance and social responsibility or corporate social responsibility.
