Why the Brain Matters: Regulating Concussion in Australian Sport
thesisposted on 01.03.2019 by ANNETTE LOUISE GREENHOW
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Concerns about the harm associated with sport-related concussion have received widespread attention in Australia in recent years. This thesis critically evaluates the regulation of Australian sport with a specific focus on the issue of sport-related concussion. The central finding is that regulating to manage and minimise the harm associated with sport-related concussion in Australia lies in the hands of both state and non-state actors taking collective action within a polycentric regulatory system.
