ICSS Journal Launch Edition

The ICSS Journal, published by Newsdesk Media in partnership with the International Centre for Sport Security, is a quarterly publication that fuses perceptive and timely insights with sport-security issues that are affecting the sporting generations of today, and of the future.

As part of the ICSS’s commitment to share knowledge and to help governments and international federations in delivering safe and secure major sport events, the Journal examines emerging themes in sport, security, economics and integrity, and includes opinion and research from international experts and practitioners.

The launch edition features a review of security at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as an examination of the security preparations for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and Brazil’s hosting of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

In his foreword to the launch edition, former NATO Secretary General Lord Robertson said: “There is now a great need to develop and share knowledge – and deploy it to maximum effect. The International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) is at the heart of this process and is an international hub for concentrated expertise in the field of sport safety, security and integrity.”
