Sport for Development, Peace, and Social Justice goes beyond the individual benefits of sport to look more closely at what sport can offer to groups of people and the communities in which they live. Although the domain of sport development is mostly uncharted, editors Robert Schinke and Stephanie Hanrahan integrate sport development projects from different disciplines to challenge readers to broaden the scope of what they think can be achieved through sport.
The 18 chapters, written by some of the world’s top sport science scholars, are presented in four trajectories that reflect the sport development literature: peace and reconciliation, social justice initiatives, health and well-being, and corporate social responsibility. Each chapter contains a different disciplinary approach to sport development that will captivate and stimulate the reader to create new collaborations among practitioners and community stakeholders.
