Summary

Sport can be a powerful tool in international development. In this comprehensive introduction to a new and exciting field within sports development, leading researcher Fred Coalter critically evaluates the successes and failures and the strengths and weaknesses of international sports development projects, programs and organizations. Beginning with an outline of the historical development of policies of 'sport-for-development', the book explores the objectives that remain central to international sports development initiatives, from the development of local social capital, self-efficacy and leadership skills, to female empowerment and HIV/AIDS awareness. Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished data from the most extensive monitoring and evaluation project ever undertaken with sport-for-development organisations, the book offers an unparalleled and fully integrated assessment of theory, policy and practice in international sports development. Sport and International Developmentis essential reading for any student or practitioner with an interest in sports development, sports policy or international development.
