Public Health Policy and Personal Responsibility in Sport: Competitive or collaborative?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Public health policy is designed to offer a utilitarian approach to the management of public health issues. New developments in civil liability legislation support the move towards individuals accepting personal responsibility for their actions particularly in areas of sport and recreation. An examination of both reveals the potential for policy and law to clash when examined in light of the burgeoning obesity epidemic, where encouragement to engage in physical activity is viewed as a cornerstone to managing the associated health issues, but the risk of injury whilst doing so is high.
