Frank van Eekeren reflects on 10 years of research into good governance in sport. He argues that the relatively young research field has outgrown childhood and seems to be in its puberty. Researchers bear a great deal of responsibility, because of their impact on practice. Taking on this responsibility requires a mature field of research that stimulates and facilitates debate and nuance, one that leads to dialogue among researchers as well as between researchers and practitioners. Systematically exploring the ontological-epistemological positions that underpin the contributions in this book, he lays out the path for the research field to move from puberty into adulthood by means of five concrete recommendations. These include implications for the relationship of the research field with its maternal sciences, other fields of science and practice.
