AIESEP Vision and Sub Committees

AIESEP’s aim (as per its constitution) is to promote high quality research worldwide in the areas of physical education, physical activity and sport pedagogy across the lifespan

To achieve this aim, AIESEP has seven key objectives, as outlined in its constitution:
