abstract

Territorial Justice and Sport: Public Subsidies to Sport in Czech Regions This study draws upon the works of Gratton and Taylor (1991) and Gratton (1984). The article discusses the concept of territorial justice and its possible use with respect to the Czech conditions. Based on statistical data provided by the Czech Statistical Office (2013) and the author’s own investigations, the relationship between regional subsidies to sport from the regional authorities and selected indicators of deprivation are examined. The analysis indicates that correlations between the indicators of deprivation and sport subsidies from the regional authorities are not statistically significant. Research findings may indicate that resources were not distributed efficiently. The evidence suggests that territorial distribution of the subsidies to sport is inconsistent with the needs of the regions. In discussion, limitations of this study and future research directions are discussed. Územní spravedlnost a sport: Dotace v oblasti sportu v krajích ČR Článek se zabývá konceptem územní spravedlnosti a jeho možným využitím v českých podmínkách. Studie čerpá z prací Grattona a Taylora (1991) a Grattona (1984). Na základě statistických údajů poskytovaných Českým statistickým úřadem (2013) a autorova vlastního šetření jsou zkoumány vztahy mezi regionálními dotacemi do sportu z krajských úřadů a vybranými ukazateli deprivace. Analýza ukazuje, že korelace mezi indikátory deprivace a dotacemi z krajských úřadů nejsou statisticky významné. Výsledky šetření mohou naznačovat, že prostředky nejsou rozděleny efektivně a územní rozdělení dotací je tak v rozporu s potřebami regionů. V diskusi jsou zdůrazněna omezení a možné směry dalšího výzkumu.
