This study was conducted within the framework of the Flemish Policy Research Sport Centre on Sports with support from the Flemish government. The Flemish Policy Research Sport Centre on Sports is a partnership between KU Leuven, Ghent University and Free University of Brussels. This second volume of the study on the organisation of sport and policy towards sport federations, includes the country profiles of the twelve countries involved. Volume 1 describes the inter-case analyses and the good practices concerning the organisation of sport and the steering, support and performance of sport federations. In this second part of the study the intra-case analyses for the twelve countries are described. The country profiles provide a structured overview of the data gathered during the research process. This gives the reader extra background information. In this way the good practices in Volume 1 can be interpreted in the country-specific context. The following countries will be discussed: The Netherlands, Germany, France, England, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Lithuania, Slovenia, Spain, Australia and Canada. In each country profile, the same structure as in the first volume of this report is used.
