    Operate

    "Until the entry into force of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) in December 2009, sport was not mentioned in the Treaties. This meant that the EU was not granted a competence to operate a ‘direct’ sports policy."


    Not 100% sure what the author means by "operate." To create? To make work?

    Thanks!

    Re: Operate

    In my opinion, they seem to mean 'enact'.
