Sport in Benin: Political game and organizational and management stake for global development


Gouda Lompo Souaïbou

In search of a model for the development of sport, Benin adopted in the years 1970 to 1990, a centralized organization entirely controlled by the socialist state without this producing notable results at the international level. Since 1990, the establishment of a democratic state has resulted in the democratization of sport on the federal model and free association. How do the players take on this change and what are the implications for sports performance and results? Considering, on the one hand, that in an organization, change leads to a redistribution of the cards by the actors to satisfy their own interests, on the other hand, that sport has long represented an important political stake (Gouda, 1997), this research aims to understand, by relying on the sociological and managerial approach of organizations, how the actors integrate this development into their organizational logic.
