Sport is more than competition and the opportunity to become physically fit. Sport and physical activity offer opportunities for people and communities to forge improved relations. Case Studies in Sport Development: Contemporary Stories Promoting Health, Peace, and Social Justice reveals how experiences from across our global community have served as the conduit to harmony within and among people.

Internationally renowned co-editors Robert J. Schinke and Ronnie Lidor have structured this compilation into three key sections:

  • Remedying Marginalization
  • Health and Well-Being
  • Sport for Peace and Social Justice

The international collection of contributing authors to Case Studies in Sport Development speak from the heart about personal yet widely applicable sport and physical activity experiences. These cases provide the reader with hope that sport and physical activity can provide answers to many of today’s and tomorrow’s societal challenges within people and communities, and among countries, races, and religions.
