Sport and peacebuilding

Sport and peacebuilding

The role of sport in peacebuilding is one of the most hotly-debated areas in sport and development. Find out more on the main areas of contention, including: definitions of 'peace' and the role of sport in rebuilding relationships; sport and peacebuilding at the grassroots and nation-state level; and the use of sport for the reintegration of child soldiers.

The purpose of the section on sport and peacebuilding is to provide an overview of the main topics and concerns in this area. At no point should this section be considered to be exhaustive in its coverage of all areas and information relating to sport and peacebuilding, but that it rather seeks to provide a gateway for interested readers to access further sources of information.
