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.

The SDP sector is moving into a new phase of development, and this is now an appropriate point for Commonwealth policy-makers to examine their future roles and contributions.
