image of Strengthening Sport for Development and Peace

Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) brings the power of sport to solving some of the most difficult challenges of humankind, such as the realisation of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.

Commonwealth leaders have consistently endorsed the role that SDP can play in development and peace work, in particular in the domain of youth engagement and empowerment. This collection of papers, commissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Commonwealth Advisory Body on Sport (CABOS), showcases innovative approaches and examples of effective SDP policies and strategies.

Written by CABOS members, independent experts and agencies, the papers reflect critical thinking and urgent debates among leading scholars and practitioners of SDP.

Preface

The Commonwealth Secretariat, working closely with the Commonwealth Advisory Body on Sport (CABOS), has become an important site of expertise, leadership and co-ordination on sport for development and peace (SDP). SDP brings the power of sport to the solution of some of the most difficult challenges of humankind, such as the realisation of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals. The Commonwealth Secretariat now contributes to the formulation, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of government policy related to SDP. It has published surveys of the most important interventions, no mean contribution in a rapidly emerging field with a variety of causes, approaches and organisations; catalogued and publicised examples of ‘best practice’; convened consultations of experts and practitioners; and communicated its findings to international forums, not the least of which have been the regular meetings of the Commonwealth sport and youth ministers.
