Working papers and interim report

As part of the first phase of the research project in 2008, Substance commissioned a number of experts in the field to provide outlines of possible approaches to assessing the social value of football clubs. They each wrote a short Working Paper, covering different approaches and methodologies. These papers form the basis of a literature review and Interim Report as well as inform how the primary research and case study work were conducted.
