Sports for development and peace
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Praveen Singh Jadon
The use of sport as a pedagogic tool has motivated the international sports movement into tangible action. In parallel, our success in the field has made political leaders and governments aware of how sport can be a genuine and effective mechanism for peace. Furthermore, we are increasingly working with international companies, to encourage them to integrate sport into their social responsibility and local policies. Sport plays a significant role as a promoter of social integration and economic development in different geographical, cultural and political contexts. Sport is a powerful tool to strengthen social ties and networks, and to promote ideals of peace, fraternity, solidarity, non-violence, tolerance and justice.
