About

Dr. Inoue’s primary research agenda is to understand how sport organizations and events create social impacts. Social impacts refers to a broad set of intangible benefits, including promoting public support for charitable causes, fostering collective identity and pride, creating social capital, and enhancing health and well-being. To advance this research agenda, his research has sought to (1) identify the role of sport organizations in promoting causes through corporate social responsibility (CSR), (2) assess the determinants and consequences of perceived social impacts of sport events, and (3) determine the capacity of spectator sport events to promote health and well-being.

Dr. Inoue's work has been published in peer-reviewed journals, such as the Journal of Sport Management, Sport Management Review, Tourism Management, the Journal of Business Ethics, and the Journal of Business Research.  In 2016, he was inducted as a Research Fellow for the North American Society for Sport Management.

Dr. Inoue currently serves as an Editorial Board Member for Sport Management ReviewSport & Entertainment Review, and the Journal of Sport Management
