From the Journal of Sport for Development Volume 6, Issue 10 (Special Issue): This paper by Sarah Oxford will explore the social, cultural and historical complexities that shape and constrain safe space.

Recent research on the role of ‘safe space’ within Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) shows that the social inclusion of young women in traditionally male sporting spaces may shift who can comfortably access and shape public spaces.

Framing safe space as a social construction and a dynamic process, and drawing from six months of ethnographic research conducted in two volatile neighbourhoods with a Colombian SDP organisation, this paper will explore the social, cultural and historical complexities that shape and constrain safe space.
