Dr Haydn Morgan
Dr Haydn Morgan is a researcher and lecturer at the University of Bath whose published research mostly explores the connection between participation in sport and the enhancement of social inclusion within marginalised populations.
More specifically, Dr Morgan’s research seeks to explore how engagement with sport and physical activity may facilitate access into education, employment and training; develop citizenship qualities; or enable young people to accumulate and enhance various forms of capital which are vital to their sense of inclusion and wellbeing.
Dr Morgan’s more recent work has explored how sport-based interventions (and the organisations involved in their delivery) are managed and evaluated. In particular, this work is concerned with the impact of the neoliberal political economy on this aspect of the sport industry, and how it influences organisational capacity, strategic priorities, and operations related to the recruitment of programme participants and deployment of human resources.
