Sport and International Development

This MA programme is dedicated to the study of sport as a tool for international development. It considers the ways in which sport can be used to facilitate a range of social and welfare needs, and how development has come about through sport policy worldwide. A particular focus of the course is the emergence of the international sport development movement itself. It considers the conceptual and ideological dimensions of the movement, and looks to evaluate those action-based interventions that aim to ameliorate conflict in seriously divided societies.
