L'autre visage du supportérisme: Autorégulations, mobilisations collectives et mouvements
- Thomas Busset, Roger Besson et Christophe Jaccoud (éd.)
- Peter Lang
The result of a scientific symposium organized in September 2012 by the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES ) in Neuchâtel, this new book addresses the issue of football fan culture from previously underexplored perspectives. The new publication focuses on ways of organizing supporters and also their ability to curb extremist demonstrations and defend common interests towards clubs, federations and public authorities. Contributors discuss different geographical regions (Argentina, Belgium, Croatia, Egypt, France, Romania and Switzerland), and utilise a more general reflection on the organisational structure of the main national and international networks in this area, and the dynamics at work between the main actors.
