Ethnic and Racial Studies

In recent years, a wide variety of organizations (notably the UN and non-governmental organizations) have used sport as an interventionist tool to nurture peacemaking across divided communities.

This paper examines and theorizes these peacemaking initiatives across the expanding ‘sport, development and peace’ (SDP) sector.

I begin by locating SDP projects within their historical contexts, and as significant elements within the emerging ‘global civil society’.

I then set out three ideal-type modelsof SDP project; namely, the ‘technical’, ‘dialogical’, and ‘critical’.

Each model is examined through a set of common social heuristics, such as its core objectives and aradigmatic methods.

The models may be employed to analyse other peacemaking and development fields.
