In this chapter, Howe, Powis and Brighton consider the future of disability sport research. Building upon our manifesto and the book’s key themes, the authors pointedly ask, “Who represents the field?” and reflect upon how they believe the field needs to change moving forward. This discussion of representation includes the need for more disabled scholars, more globally and ethnically diverse voices and the translation of non-English scholarship. As well as representation, the authors reinforce their plea for theoretically and methodologically robust research and highlight the multifaceted ways in which Researching Disability Sport has showcased the high-quality scholarship that is required to advance the field. Finally, the chapter ends with a call for action that the authors hope will embolden a new generation of disability sport researchers.
