New article on integrating sport-for-development theory and praxis

A new article on integrating sport-for-development theory and practice is available from the Sport Management Review online.

According to some scholars, the effectiveness of sport in promoting positive social change is minimal. This leads to an incongruity between theory and practice. In their new article, Alexis Lyras and Jon Welty Peachey from the University of Louisville, USA, address this dilemma.

Sports-for-Development Theory
The article provides substantial theoretical foundations on sport-for-development based on ten years of theory building and testing. The sport-for-development theory (SFDT) is seen as a basis for further academic criticism and testing.

Sports-for Development in Practice
Going from theory to practice, Lyras and Peachey outline how scholars and practitioners can use theory to effectively implement sports to promote social change and development. By outlining simple, yet effective policy and program recommendations, suggestions for future research and practice are made.
