Sport in under-resourced, underdeveloped, and conflict regions / ed. by Meredith A. Whitley... [et al.]

Whitley, Meredith A.

Edited by Routledge - 2017

Over the past two decades, scholars and practitioners have taken a keen interest in the field of sport for development and peace (SDP). These efforts have largely focused on and debated the merits of sport as a tool for development, diplomacy, and peacebuilding in under-resourced, underdeveloped, and conflict regions. Making sense of the positive contributions that sport can offer to such complex and multi-faceted issues requires understanding the various connections and meanings that individuals and communities ascribe to their sporting experiences. This book offers a unique outlet for research that engages with, rather than makes claims about, individuals and communities around the world. Diverse, contemporary, and thought-provoking examples of qualitative methods in the study of SDP are detailed, along with rich, meaningful, and provocative insights from these studies.
