On 15 March 2023, sportanddev hosted a webinar on the topic of “Sport and Democracy”.
The webinar was part of sportanddev’s spotlight on this topic, which also included a call for articles, published articles, and an upcoming website page. With support from the Swedish Postcode Foundation, sportanddev’s spotlight aimed to increase awareness and knowledge of the topic, and to increase debate and dialogue.
Questions addressed in the call for articles and the webinar included:
- How can sport promote the development of inclusive, democratic societies?
- How can we democratise the sport for development sector?
- What is the link between sport, human rights, and good governance?
- How can we dismantle the unequal power structures that often redistribute sport for development resources to the Global North, over the Global South?
