Research Interests

One area Simon is currently researching, in conjunction with Leeds Business School, is governance and leadership in sport. He is looking at how governance in sports organisations can be promoted and improved so as to become more democratic and transparent and engage more effectively with issues such as bribery and match fixing.

His second area of current research centres around the meaning of the word ‘integrity’ in sport – a word used widely and superficially. He is looking at the problems caused by doping and financial corruption and possible solutions that could help regain integrity in sport.
