As a policy aim for the Olympic Movement, the development of Olympic education programmes remains a key goal for the IOC as well as for host cities and nations staging the Olympic Games. Tokyo, the capital city of Japan, is set to host the 2020 Olympic Games. This is the second time that Tokyo is to host the Summer Olympic Games, first held in 1964. Since the announcement of the success of Tokyo’s bid for the hosting the 2020 Olympic Games in 2014, various stakeholders have been highly active in defining a range of Olympic sports policy and research initiatives to be pursued as part of preparation for staging the Games. For the promotion of Olympic education for the Tokyo 2020 Games, a number of Olympic education initiatives have been developed and implemented across Japan by different levels of stakeholders in the Japanese Olympic system. This report examined how Olympic education programmes for Tokyo 2020 have been developed and delivered in a Japanese specific context, applying realist policy analysis and concluded with the conceptualisation of the phenomenon in terms of policy communities and the evaluation of policy networks involved in the delivery of Olympic education policy.
